Description of problem:
If a bug for a product is to be enetered directly, like here:
then there is a notification which says
"Before reporting a bug, please read the bug writing guidelines, please look at the list of most frequently reported bugs, and please search for the bug."
and it has links to duplicates.cgi and query.cgi
What I'd find much more useful (in addition) would be to have a predefined search query for the product.
I.e. on the line with "Product:" there would be a link like "(search open bugs)" which would lead to a query that would display a list of unresolved bugs for the product,
(While this is not useful for large products, still we have a few where there is not that much bugs opened ... maybe, for products with large number of bugs, the link could just open the advanced search with the product pre-filled, and also all "unresolved" bug states chosen, not just NEW and ASSIGNED which is the default.)
Red Hat has now upgraded to Bugzilla 3.6 and this bug will now be reassigned to that version. It would be helpful to the Bugzilla Development Team if this bug is verified to still be an issue with the latest version. If it is no longer an issue, then feel free to close, otherwise please comment that it is still a problem and we will try to address the issue as soon as we can.
