I agree with you but from the perspective of Bugzilla being useful (very useful in fact) for the web developers and designers doing the actual HTML coding and even for the HTML development tool developers whose tools are used to emit (hopefully) web standards compliant HTML. I really appreciate the tehcnical analysis that's part of the Bugzilla tech evangelism reports.

The thing is, I think Bugzilla is a bit too low level (intimidating as you mention for the new or casual user). Using the existing forums is probably the easiest approach but I'm not sure if it's the best since the forum users possibly don't search the forums for discussion on questions or topics they have in favor of starting new threads on redundant topics. Also, I wonder how much credibility a message forum would have (from the perspective of a developer of some sort) vs a bug database or a well organized site containing the pertinent information.

What do I know.... :)

Peace...
