Details

Currently, the best way to file a bug concerning hal is to file it under Widget or DOM but hal isn't like widget and isn't directly related to DOM.
We should have a proper way to file hal bugs with a dedicated component: Core::Hal.
can you please provide a full description of the component.

see https://wiki.mozilla.org/BMO/Requesting_Changes#Components for the requirements 
and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Core for example descriptions.

thanks :)
To bikeshed this, I really think that if we need this at all it should be "Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL)", since I had to go asking on IRC what "hal" was.
Name: "Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL)"
Product: "Core"
Description:
"""
For bugs in the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) code regardless of the backend.

Example of appropriate bugs: implementation of a new feature for a backend, fixing a bug for a specific backend or general bugs regarding HAL.
"""

We should probably have hal@core.bugs as a QA contact.

Let me know if something is still needed.
