i'm trying to make the guided "new bug" form shorter. i just removed
the hardware platform and OS fields, since they can be autodetected
pretty reliably. i also removed the URL field, since it's not all that
useful (and users can put a URL in the "additional information" box
anyway). i added a listbox to select the correct version (which i found
odd that it was lacking before).
i'm thinking about axing all of "step 1" and replacing it with a short,
3-5 line list of links to places to search first. opinions? any other
thoughts to make it simpler without losing any possibly-useful info in
the initial report?
if you're lazy like me, you can get there via:
p.s. wow! we're already up to bug 641! we were only around 450 when
we switched from mantis...
