Section "5.6. Filing Bugs" should be updated or followed by another section about bug edition and how to change several bugs at once.

I'd like to work on this. I think the "using" section could use a lot of elaboration/work. This is a good place to start. But, i'm not sure exactly what you mean by bug edition - probably because it's not documented :)

Ah thanks Max for the clarification. I think we should have a section called "Working with Bugs" where this and other things are addressed, as "editing bugs" is really the primary function of bugzilla - working with bugs that already exist.

Here is how I propose the structure of the "Using" section to be:

5. Using Bugzilla

    5.1. Introduction
    5.2. Create a Bugzilla Account
    5.3. Working with Bugs
      5.3.1 Anatomy of a Bug
      5.3.2 Life Cycle of a Bug
      5.3.3 Filing Bugs
      5.3.4 Searching for Bugs
      5.3.5 Editing Existing Bugs
         5.3.5.1 Changing multiple bugs at once
      5.3. Attachments
      5.3. Hints and Tips
    5.4. Time Tracking Information
    5.5. User Preferences
    5.6. Reports and Charts
    5.7. Flags
    5.8. Whining

Thoughts on this before I do any work?

Bugzilla 2.20 is no longer supported. Retargetting to 2.22.
Target Milestone: Bugzilla 2.20 → Bugzilla 2.22

I'm sorry - I have dropped off the face of the Earth with grad school. I have one final next week and then I have a two week break. I can try to get something done during that time.

We now have an editing section, but it needs a bit about "Change Several Bugs At Once".
