Description Gavin Romig-Koch 2010-05-21 21:30:59 UTC
The GTK GUI window that asks "Where would you like to send this report?" is very difficult to read.  It displays a row of buttons horizontally which, if there is lots of buttons, will stretch across the screen, and could stretch off the screen.

A better way would be to display the buttons vertically.

Also, the title in the window manager bar above the window is just "Query", haveing it repeat the question "Where would ..." would be better.

I did notice your previous update, but I figured this bug would be fun/simple to hack on anyway.

Feel free to test/use this patch. It should apply to the latest HEAD commit. The approach I took was using radio buttons in place of (normal??) buttons.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 22:32:23 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
