Description David Balažic 2003-01-30 13:43:34 UTC
Description of problem:

A bug property is sometimes named "platform", sometimes "hardware".
On page https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi it says :

Red Hat Public Beta  | For bugs about the Phoebe Public Beta release of Red Hat 
Linux, please choose phoebe as the version and i386 as the platform. 

Note "i386 as the platform".

On the bug entry page ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi?
product=Red%20Hat%20Public%20Beta ) it is also marked as "Platform" ( the first 
drop box, under the "Version" list ).

But when viewing an existing bug, the parameter is "renamed" to "Hardware", 
example :

( second value in first line under "Edit Bug Information" "subwindow" )

On the query page ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/query.cgi ) it is also 
called "Hardware".

Platform is what it really needs to be called everywhere so I have made the
changed you have pointed out. Please reopen if you find more occurances of this.
