Bug Reporting Guidelines

Monday June 7th, 1999

Jan Leger from Mozilla's QA group has asked that everyone please take a look at the bug reporting guidelines before submitting a bug for Mozilla. Jan writes:

"More and more folks are using mozilla and writing bugs. This is great! What is not great is the quality of the bugs being written. Engineers and I spend many hours pinging back and forth with bug reporters regarding better info needed. We want to fix the bugs! But we need better bug writing."

Please check out the guidelines, and please continue to submit those bugs!

Ummm when you click on the link to download a nightly build from the mozilla.org site, you get a nice JavaScript window saying "ARE YOU CRAZY??!!". This could easily be built into the Bug-Reporting system -- when someone clicks on the link to report a new bug, just display a message like "OK, have you read the bug-writing guidelines? Click "OK" to read them, "Cancel" otherwise."

Then clicking "OK" would start a nice window.open() with the bug-guidelines page!

Sounds sound,
