Description xandrani 2010-05-09 04:28:20 UTC
The component description names (especially on GUI builder) need updating.  Also the descriptions mean nothing.  I'm a developer in my day job and they don't even make sense to me!

This simple fix would save hours of admin (if you add up all the time) of changing the component guessed by the user.  There's a hint that there's a problem because if the component item is left out and the issue form is submitted on Bugzilla then a warning appears something like:

"You have left the component field blank, but this must be set.  If you don't know then just guess"... indeed! ;)

Improving Bugzilla so it's more efficient will save time for more important (and probably more fun) matters! :)
