The assigned_to field is currently changed down in the knob. This is inconsistent, and gives rise to a class of bugs like "I want to reassign the bug and also do X". We should move it up into the body of the bug, and make it independently editable. Gerv
We need to decide what happens in the following cases: - Bug is ASSIGNED, and is reassigned - Bug is NEW/UNCONFIRMED/REOPENED, and is reassigned Ideally, the "reassign to owner and QA of selected component" function would be up in the main body of the bug too; this leaves only status and resolution changes in the knob, which makes sense. However, this is hard to implement UI-wise unless you are using a dropdown to choose the assignee, which won't be true in all cases. Alternatively, you could reassign it to the owner and QA of the selected component if you clear the field, but that's not very discoverable. Is that a problem? Gerv

There could be a checkbox - "reassign to defualt owner" beside or beneath the AssignedTo and QA Contact boxes, too.
