Details

It would be nice to add a combo-box to the right of the keywords edit control 
(in search form and bug reports) which contains a list of all common keywords.   
Selecting a keyword from the list would add it to the keywords edit control.   
This would make it easier to maintain a common set of keywords across bug 
reports.
I don't think this is a good idea.  The idea is that there will be hundreds or
thousands of keywords.  (One installation of Bugzilla already has >1800 keywords
defined.)  That doesn't fit into a combo box!

Adding a subset of keywords that is "common keywords" seems overly complicated,
and it will confuse people who see the pulldown list and think those are the
only allowed keywords.

Maybe a link on describekeywords.cgi?
Huh?  There already is a link to there, right?  Am I missing something?
A link from there, not to there.  So when you click a keyword on there, you
return to the show_bug page with the keyword added.
Yuck.  I don't think anyone would ever figure it out.  But feel free to REOPEN
this bug (and reassign it to Tara :-).
