I'm frustrated entering bugs into bugzillas. Its a 15 minute
logging in, searching to see if its already entered, filling everything
in, etc. Bugzilla needs a template that users can prefill for various
bugs to speed things up.
Yes - reporting bugs can be frustrating and bugzilla is not (always) a very
userfriendly piece of software.
And half the time it doesn't get looked at for weeks and by that
the page isn't up anymore.
That is how free software works. The best (browser)-bugreports are those
where the bugs are already isolated with the test-case attached to the
bug and not buried in 200k of html.
Well defined bugs will increase the probablility of a quick fix tremendously.
I got upset with Konqueror a couple years ago and did a blitz of
entering bug reports for web pages that didn't work. The results were
pretty dismal. I gave up.
Maybe spending some time on bug-triage of konqueror-bugs would be a good
way to help out for you then?
Yes - sometimes bugs rot in $bugtracker until they're no longer relevant
but that is the price you pay for free software.
