In recent (> 2.17.4) versions of Bugzilla there is a complete config.cgi file that can be parsed to check valid form values. This should be used from bugzilla-submit instead of the crude string matching currently in place.
BTW, this bug was posted from bugzilla-submit using the patch from bug 229998 :-)
Assignee: justdave → kiko
Created attachment 139022 [details] [diff] [review] kiko_v1: parse config.cgi and validate fields. This should only go in once 2.18 is released, or bugzilla-submit won't be widely useful. The current version works fine even with bmo.

Unsetting the target milestone, on the assumption that nobody is actually working on it or has any plans to soon. If you are the owner, and you plan to work on the bug, please give it a real target milestone. If you are the owner, and you do *not* plan to work on it, please reassign it to firstname.lastname@example.org or a .bugs component owner. If you are *anybody*, and you get this comment, and *you* plan to work on the bug, please reassign it to yourself if you have the ability.
Target Milestone: Bugzilla 2.20 → ---
Does this patch still apply? And does bugzilla-submit still work correctly with Bugzilla 4.x?
