Max, Gandalf and I were talking about improving the out-of-the-box experience with the guided bug entry form.

I've already went through it to polish the language. Gandalf needs to take the attached create-guided.html.tmpl file to fix:

-> Removal of browser sniff and warning on Netscape 6/7 browsers 
-> Queries in bug form are specific to bugzilla.mozilla.org's component list, and won't work "out of the box" on other databases.

Also, my big concern is that I have no way to test that I didn't "break" the page in some fashion when working with the text. It probably should receive actual testing when it's checked in.

(I'll be available through September 16th at which point grad school starts.)

Is this a "work in progress" file? Else you should do a "cvs diff -uN" and attach your patch here, and of course request review if you want to see your patch committed.

Yes, this is a work-in-progress file assigned to Gandalf to complete.

The guided bug entry form is going to be removed from the core Bugzilla code (see bug 474086), so we won't be fixing these bugs in upstream Bugzilla. It was always just an example page, to begin with. I'm moving the bugs to the bmo component, to at least preserve a record of the fact that these things may need to be fixed for bmo.

The text has now changed sufficiently that it's hard to see from the attached file what the improvements were (as it's not a diff). I could try and dig out the version which it was a modification of by guesswork, but given the age of this bug, I think I'm going to WONTFIX it instead. Hope no-one's too disappointed :-)
