Sounds like we both have similar goals here. I think having both a OS based
app and a simple web interface for our bugreporting is a great idea.
Anything that makes it easier for normal users to report issues and give
feedback will only lead to making Fedora a more user friendly distro.
I know that there were folks in the Desktop SIG who were interested
in a more friendly bug filing Web interface, as well as other
possibilities for lowering the fright factor of Bugzilla.
