Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22392
RFE: must select component - even for enhancement request
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:14 EDT
I tried to submit an enhancement request (severity: enhancement) to add a
new package to powertools. I was forced to choose a component that
already exists in the list in order to submit the request. I had to
choose an invalid component (9wm) to suggest the package ttywatch.
Enhancement requests should not necessarily require known component.
On the other hand: bugzilla must know who to assign the thing.
It's a good policy to file this kind of requests to the nearest matching package
as he's likely to be in position to decide about the addition.
It is a design issue with Bugzilla that it requires a component to be selected
so as to know who to assign it to. One idea would be to create a "no_component"
component for each product and have a default owner for those type of
requests/bugs. I am changing to assigned RFE and will talk to someone about it
when I get into work on Monday.
Please use the component 'distribution' for these type bugs.
