Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13793
Field values should be optional, not mandatory
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:27:31 EDT
Values for the writer, location, category, description, and deeper fields
should be optional. If not provided, the fields should not be presented on
the Web site. Even if you argue that the writer field should be set
appropriately, there is some content, such as a press release, that doesn't
have a "writer", and that needs to be accomodated. This would ensure that
(a) we do not present misleading information; and (b) we do not present
extraneous or unnecessary content (as you noted yesterday).
The "as you noted yesterday" text may be ignored. =) I cut and pasted the bug
report from an older e-mail.
