Bugzilla Helper Replacement

Wednesday June 19th, 2002

In the words of its maintainer Gervase Markham, the Bugzilla Helper "has been creaking for some time now. It's buggy, uses JavaScript, uses popups, has dodgy formatting and is generally broken."

The good news is that a replacement is in development. Read Gerv's newsgroup posting for full details and send feedback to netscape.public.mozilla.webtools.

my thinking was that with these four or five questions the wizard could construct a sufficiently good query to return a list of bugs which contains the reporter's problem and if the query didn't return the reporter's problem the wizard would have gathered sufficient information to assist the reporter in filing a good bug report. i don't think that the wizard would have to contain any list of frequent problems, it would just be the means of gathering info from the reporter to do smart queries against bugzilla (including duplicates.cgi).
