Description Toni Willberg 2003-06-23 11:59:43 EDT
This page:
uses Javascript for composing URL to next page on [Open Bugzilla Entry  Form]

This causes Apache to burn when the content of the form was quite long (not
massive long anyway):

 Request-URI Too Large
 The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.
 request failed: URI too long
 Apache/1.3.27 Server at bugzilla.redhat.com Port 443

Consider using "normal" <form> instead of Javascript.

This problem may cause people feel angry because they just lost they bugreport...

"Apache to burb", I ment to say :)

Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.

easy_enter_bug.cgi has been obsoleted in favor of a newer revamped guided bug
entry page. It is now using POST instead. Please open a new bug if the guided
entry page is still broken for you.
