The biggest problem we have with Mozilla are the bugs, right? Well, I just thought of a real simple minded patch to Bugzilla that really ought to help a lot.
I do not know why someone did not think of this before! It is so simple minded! Can you tell from my exclamation points, how thrilled and proud I am that I have thought of such a brilliant solution?!!?!
All that needs to be done is to add a text field on the Bugzilla bug form where Nemo_NX can type in a few lines in English about how the bug should be fixed and then when he hits the submit button, just have Bugzilla automatically generate the code for Nemo_NX's patch!! That's it!
Once that has been added, bugs can be eliminated in hours or even minutes instead of days, weeks, or months. New features can be added as quickly as Nemo_NX can type!
It should probably eventually be modified so that people other than Nemo_NX can fix bugs too and maybe we should not limit it to English only, but those issues can be addressed later. :) Now honestly, how long would it take to do something so simple? However, I guess I can wait till 1.0 for it to be implemented.
