Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-11-12 08:05:36 UTC
At the moment, when one views a bug one sees all the nice
long sets of things one might be able to change at the top,
and only after scrolling past them does one get to the text
of the bug (and comments thereupon).

 It strikes me that this order is perhaps inverted; I
suspect that far more people are interested in the text
of the bug than in all the change options, and thus it
would be useful if the text came first and all the things
one could (maybe) change came later.

 As a bonus improvement, bugzilla could delete all the
fields that one isn't privledged enough to use, and
reduce the space used even more. (Perhaps it already
does this and I haven't noticed.)

I have implemented, as you can probably tell, something similar to what you are
describing. If you thing it needs further improvement let me know. If a user
cannot make a change to a bug, the report is now much smaller also. Leaving only
the option of adding a comment, adding themselves to CC list or removing from CC
