This patch allows grouping of products when choosing the product in
enter_bug.cgi as well as in the admin interface.. Each product can be given a
group name and when you go to enter_bug you will be presented with groups of
products in a similar way as (I'm not sure there is a patch
for the way enter_bug is done on

Patch for 2.17 Head of Sept 30th 2003

Patch for the above specified feature.
bug 174298 is the one that accomplished what you see on 
It was pretty much a site-specific hack.  If this works out well, they could
very likely drop the hack next time they upgrade after this goes in. :)

I think I heard mention of Joel doing something along these lines on his site
too...  ccing for comment

Mine is also something of a hack.  (OK, it's really a hack)
However, the right approach is probably similar.

What we need to do is to define a MenuGroup table with Menu group ids, Menu
group names, and menu group descriptions.  It should be possible to assign each
product to a menu group id (by picking the name from a drop-down list in

Then, if a user has entry privileges on more than one menugroup, the "select the
product" template should present the choices in a hierarchy.  Ideally, it should
be possible to customize between a) Selecting the menu group and then the
product within it and b) Presenting all the products, but organizing them in
Menu groups.

Patch against 2.17 for a picker for prod groups. Needs Bug 102852

This is an additional patch which needs the previous patch as well as the
picker patch in Bug 102852.. It allows to pick product groups directly from
already existing entries in the database.

Either this is a dupe of bug 224208 or vice-versa

Here is an old bug that I don't understand, it appears to suggest something along the lines of the classification feature used to group products but I am not sure. If anyone understands this bug could you give it a little direction? I think the bug is a little out of date.
