Description

7 years ago
I think the default column list needs reconsidering for the 21st century :-) (Inspired by bug 499546).

Terry set it in the original Bugzilla code to: 
"severity", "priority", "platform", "assigned_to", "status", "resolution", "summary"
http://bzr.mozilla.org/bugzilla/trunk/annotate/1972/globals.pl#L337

Today, it is: 
"severity", "priority", "op_sys", "assigned_to", "status", "resolution", "summary"
http://bzr.mozilla.org/bugzilla/trunk/annotate/head:/Bugzilla/Constants.pm#L278

Notice the similarity :-) (The one change was bug 72948, in 2005).

Here is a straw-man suggestion for a better set and ordering, based on the fields I think are most used and most important today:

Product
Component
Assignee
Keywords (or tags when we have them)
Summary
Status
Resolution
Last Changed

Keep the bug summary at the very end. Also, I'm not sure how useful the product is. When you look for bugs, you are already supposed to restrict your query to products you are looking for.

This is the thing. 10 years ago, everyone used the complex query form, and restricted by product. These days, people type a few words into the search box, Google style, and hit Enter. So they'll get back bugs from many products. Being able to see which are in the right product, and to sort the list by product (when we have column sorting, which b.m.o. already has) makes this much easier.

I'm not too fussed about the order :-)

It would be nice to have LpSolit sign off on it also, BTW, before we commit.

Patch v.1

I'm personally more used to have the changed date as the first field, but this is still an improvement over what we have currently. So r=LpSolit
