Description Chris Ricker 2001-07-24 15:31:32 UTC
Typically, I (and I presume most end users / fellow beta testers, though
that could just be my imagining) will use bugzilla something like the

1.  use Red Hat, find bug
2.  fire up web browser, hit bugzilla, do a query against the appropriate
package for the bug
3.  find that bug isn't reported, go to fill out new bug report

Step 3 is the problem.  There are 3 screens that unnecessarily and
tediously (when filing lots of bugs) have to be waded through every time to
fill out a bug report, even though bugzilla potentially has all the desired
information (which package is buggy, what version is buggy) to directly
bring up a bug report screen.

I'd really like to see an additional button added to results from queries,
something like "file new bug against this package".  Obviously, the button
would be disabled for complex queries (those against multiple components or
multiple release versions), but for simple queries like people usually make
when reporting bugs it would be a major convenience enhancement.
