This is commonly used in enough components that we should not have to go back and edit again to set these.  This should be a fairly straightforward patch.
FYI, bugzilla already supports adding the priority field to enter_bug.cgi via the 'letsubmitterchoosepriority' param (under Bug Change Policies). However, it will show it up to all users (including those without any privileges), so it may be wise to restrict it to only be shown to canconfirm or editbugs users.

I think reed and I concluded that users without editbugs/canconfirm are forced to use the helper anyways, so I think comment 1 (and much of the IRC discussion about this bug!) is irrelevant.
I turned the 'letsubmitterchoosepriority' param on, so enter_bug.cgi now shows the priority field as an option.
Can we turn letsubmittereditwhiteboard on as well?
There is no such setting.
I think Vlad intended to say "can we fix this bug?"
I think Vlad intended to say "can we fix this bug soon?" actually. Perhaps that wasn't clear 12 days ago, or indeed 26 days ago when the bug was filed. I'm happy to clear it up now, though.

The Firefox team is using the whiteboard more and more in order to categorize bugs along project lines. This is a pretty large productivity issue for us.

fwiw, the enter_bug.cgi form will accept a status whiteboard if you munge one in. Thus, this bookmarklet works the way you'd want:

Component: Bugzilla: Other b.m.o Issues → Server Operations
QA Contact: other-bmo-issues → mrz
What's it take to get this bug fixed and what's a reasonable ETA?  Oct 6?
Code to support this exists (or will be easy to hack) in Bugzilla 3.4.  Should be an easy fix after (or as part of) the 3.4 upgrade.

letsubmitterchoosepriority is now on.

patch to allow whiteboard under expert fields on enter_bug is now checked in, and will be live later this morning:
