The bugzilla-submit documentation and scripts refers to the field 'Operating-
System' field in several places, but trying to use the following input file:

Product: test
Version: dev-trunk
Component: Misc
Short-Desc: XXX test bug
Hardware: x86
Operating-System: Linux
Severity: critical
Keywords: test

XXX test comment

gives the error:

bugzilla-submit: invalid field: Operating-System

Changing 'Operating-System' in the input file to just 'OS' appears to yield 
correct results. The URL line is also rejected in a similar manner.

This is against a local bugzilla installation running the current HEAD.

Patch coming.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
This patch fixes both problems.

The operating-system problem appears to be a typo, the behaviour now matches
the other code and the documentation.

The URL problem is because header_to_field does a 'lower()' call on the
incoming header before checking it for an alias, so all the aliases must be
written in lower case.
Attachment #138359 - Flags: review?(kiko)

a) do we want Operating-System or OS? I find the latter shorter and more to the
point, so it could be a matter of fixing the docs. I'm open for argument to the
contrary, though.

b) The comment you added is a bit confusing, since the set of tuples under it
has underscores :-) Should it be cleared up a bit?

Eric, any comments?
Ever confirmed: true
Yeah, the comment is blatently wrong :-) Sorry guys.

I went for operating-system (rather than OS) because operating-system is used 
in one other place in the code as well as the docs.

But the command line long code for setting operating system is --os - I think 
I'm inclined to agree with you and will change it to use OS (and update the 
docs) unless anyone disagrees.

I'll produce an updated patch later on.

You beat me to it kiko, thanks.

The changes look good to me.

Not sure contrib/ changes need approval (although contrib/ additions certainly
would), but here it is anyway; a=myk.

Checkin done, thanks. Joe, if you can confirm that you've tested this to work
later on, I'd appreciate it.

kiko, I've tested the checked in version and it works fine. Thanks!
This is a suggestion not only for this bug but also for the general.

Since on the description and additional comments list, there are always "reply"
shown, when you click into it, the description or the additional comments will
automatically repeat again in the column of Additional Comments. 

Is it better to have a optional feature for not repeat?
Cheryl, could you explain further what you mean?
