Description Cole Robinson 2012-05-29 10:53:40 EDT
I just received a 'new bug' email, it looked like this:



            Bug ID: 826044
            Blocks: 784611
        QA Contact: extras-qa@fedoraproject.org

Notice the beginning of the email basically has the least interesting info: blocks, QA contact, clone of, depends on, etc. etc. I want to be able to see at least Summary + Component + Product + Version at a quick glance. Given how my thunderbird client is arranged, I don't by default have a full page view to see it all, and the large CC list pushes vital information out of first site.

Compare this to the previous email format:



           Summary: [Regression]Libvirtd will die if start a guest with

The fundamental bits are closer to the top (though I would argue still not optimally arranged, but much better than the new format).
