Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-11-12 03:11:32 EST
At the moment, it is not clear what one does to add a
comment to a bug report. By experimentation, for my own
bug, I found that clicking on the 'Save Changes' button
in the 'Private Changes' box did it, but one could guess
that this is only for the 'Change State or Resolution'
box and get lost.

 For that matter, it's not obvious whether or not an
ordinary person can still add a comment to another
person's bug report. One used to be able to in the
old Bugzilla version, but the text in the 'Private
Changes' box sort of suggests that one can't any

 If Redhat has set it up so that one can't add comments
to another person's bug report, I'd like to urge changing
it back again. I've certainly found that the information
shared among users of the bug-reporting system in those
added comments was valuable. (I certainly understand if
Red Hat feels it can no longer afford the anarchy and
possible problems of people scribbling comments all over
bug reports; I'll just feel sad about it.)

Please try this again now. I think I have put it back to the way that you are
talking about. Please let me know of any other suggestions you may have to make
bugzilla better.
