Displays wrong product name in question of bug entry template for Chimera or Bugzilla
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021104 Chimera/0.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021104 Chimera/0.6 Section labelled Expected Results asks "What should Mozilla have done instead?". The question is inappropriate especially being that the top of the form says clearly that the Product is either Bugzilla or Mozilla embedded in the page code. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter non-Mozilla bug report in bugilla.mozilla.org tracked components. 2. Scroll down to Expected Results.. 3. Tadah! Actual Results: Always squawks "What should Mozilla have done instead" like a parrot.. Expected Results: Bugzilla should ask "What should (product name) have done instead?" --nobrainer. Here is the section of bug entry template that needs to be fixed in both cases: <tr> <td valign="middle" align="right"> <b>Expected Results</b> </td> <td valign="top"> <p> What should Mozilla have done instead? </p> <textarea rows="4" cols="80" name="expected_results" wrap="hard"></textarea> </td> </tr> Since there is already a different template for each product, it doesn't make sense that this item wasn't changed to match the name of each product. It will take little work at all to patch this, just some minor text edits and ftp up the patched pages to the Bugilla mothership!
gerv owns the helper. Should these bugs be filed on bugzilla or m.o, btw? At the very least, we need to drop the 'please customise this' text.

Yes, this is a valid bug. I'll do a patch tonight to make it use [% product %] instead of Mozilla. bbaetz' issue tracked as bug 179486. Gerv
This patch makes the Bugzilla Helper a little more generic, now that it can be used for any product. Gerv
Attachment #105889 - Flags: review?(bbaetz)
Comment on attachment 105889 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v.1 Hmm. 'The software' is sort of vague. Can't we use the product name instead? Of course, you then end up with 'Mozilla.org crashes, hangs, or ....', which is a bit silly. OTOH, thats not software either, so its no less silly

> Of course, you then end up with 'Mozilla.org crashes, hangs, or ....', which is > a bit silly. OTOH, thats not software either, so its no less silly. It is more silly. "The software crashes..." is merely inappropriate. "mozilla.org crashes" is gramatically and generally silly. Other suggestions welcome, but I can't see a better way of improving the wording without removing all explanatory text, or starting to fork the template. We could change the hack to force the template only for certain products, but then things start getting complicated. Gerv
I don't know. I'm not too fussed over it, mind you. Ccing people for comments?
bbaetz: no-one seems to care. So can we go with my wording? :-) Gerv
How about "The product in question crashes, hangs, "etc... Just generify it where it's silly to use the name...
Comment on attachment 105889 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v.1 Yeah, ok. Lets go with your wording until someone complains. (gerv: you should cc me when responding to my comments, wicn I cna't do so from the attachment screen yet ;)
Attachment #105889 - Flags: review- → review+
Only justdave/myk get to approve bugzilla bugs....
sure, works for me.
Lol.. maybe the fact that the reporter can flag the review +, -, or ? is itself another bug that should be reported then.. or is it just this implementation of bugzilla? :) The Flags:(Help!) file is not too helpful to a new user of Bugzilla, it makes assumptions about past knowledge of prior versions and to a new user sounds like if flags are intended only for a specific person, their name is put to the right of the drop-down.. Here's the confusing line: "Finally, statuses are preceded by the abbreviated email address (nick) of the person granting the status and succeeded by the nick of the person who has been asked to set the status (if any). " Hence if there isn't a name to the right, it sounds like its open to all..
Hmm. The activity log of this bug doesn't seem to be recording the resetting of the approval status... Gerv
