Description

I got it installed.  It would have been nice to know a few things.  Here's a
diff for README that got me going:


Index: README
===================================================================
RCS file: /home/nextbus/CVS/tools/BugZilla/README,v
retrieving revision 1.1
diff -r1.1 README
76a77,78
>   Create an empty directory called "data", make it world-readable
> and executable.
85,87c87,90
< Now, you should be run all six scripts named make*.sh.  This creates the
< database tables and populates them a teeny bit.

> Now, you should be abled to edit and run all six scripts named make*.sh.  This
creates the dat
abase tables and populates them a teeny bit.  You'll need to blow away
"data/versioncache", if i
t is present, to make the changes aparent.  You can check that the tables are
set up correctly u
sing mysql commands directly to the database:
>       mysql -u bugadmin -p bugs
>       mysql> show tables;
>       mysql> select * from components;
104,105c107,111
< Tweak the parameters to taste.  Be careful.

> Tweak the parameters to taste.  Be careful. The person listed as 'maintainer'
in the data/para
ms file gets two additional menus on the query page.  The first is useful, the
second is not.  A
ny changes to component owners made with the the GUI will be below away next
time you run "makec
omponenttable.sh".  The menus are:
> <UL>
> <LI>Edit Bugzilla operating parameters
> <LI>Edit Bugzilla component owners
> </UL>
143a150,153
>
> 8. Renaming a product or component
> 9. Deleting a product or component
>


And while I'm at it, index.html should be fixed to be a bit more intuitive:

Index: index.html

The README you were using is already old and out of date.  Please see the
most recent version (available only via CVS).

I don't find your patches to index.html make it more intuitive.
per Terry, auto-verifying any resolved bug that hasn't been touched since before 
2.10 was released.
