Misleading wording describing severity "blocker" on Bugzilla Helper form
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030913 Firebird/0.6.1+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030913 Firebird/0.6.1+ The Severity Option when filling out the Bugzilla Helper form describing a "blocker" severity bug as one that "prevents you from testing or developing Mozilla". I don't know whether that an accurate description or not, but everywhere in triaging and QAing bugs, "blocker" is treated as meaning 'prevents *mozilla.org developers* from testing or developing Mozilla'. Rewording the description on the helper form would stop people from labeling bugs as blocker because it blocks their personal work, and then wondering why the severity of their bug gets downgraded when they did what the form said.

The man has a fair point. This changes the wording to "This bug prevents Mozilla developers from testing or developing the software." Gerv

I don't know if it's suitable to include "Mozilla developers" in the /mozilla/webtools/bugzilla/template/en/default directory. It contains the default template, that will be the out-of-the-box thing for all new Bugzilla installations.
Brainstorming idea to consider: how about leaving "developers", without Mozilla in front?
That template is intentionally Moz-specific in lots of places, and is marked as such. It's officially in the tree as an "example" :-) Gerv
>> That template is intentionally Moz-specific in lots of places I did grep -R "Mozilla" * | grep -v "Public" in the "bugzilla" directory in order to find references to Mozilla (excluding "Mozilla Public License"). I found around 87 matches. The only template that I could find that is specifically made for bugzilla.mozilla.org is create-guided.html.tmpl.
> The only template that I could find that is > specifically made for bugzilla.mozilla.org is create-guided.html.tmpl. Yep, that's right - it's currently the only template which is in the tree under the "example" idea we thought up :-) Gerv
