Why, goodness me. We didn't think of that. I'll go and add some immediately.

Seriously, do you not think that the Bugzilla schema has been carefully analysed? The real problem with bugzilla.mozilla.org is underpowered hardware for the massive amounts of use it gets. Still, we are working on performance improvements, like mod_perl support.

Bugzilla's UI is fully templatised, so you can produce easier bug entry forms if you'd like to do so. The KDE project has a bug reporting wizard, and Mozilla has the guided bug entry form: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…ter_bug.cgi?format=guided>

Anyway, the default bug entry form, <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi> isn't all that complicated.
