Re: Suggestions for Bugzilla - Subject Keywords

The correct way to do this, really, is tracking bugs. A multiplicity of
keywords makes it too hard to find the important ones, and not useful
enough for the people who need to use keywords. I admit it's a fine
line, and I guess I'm open to persuasion. But mostly I think it's better
for things like menu-editing to just have tracking bugs that link
against the relevant bugs. It's more fine grained and more useful that
way. [And yes, having a 'tracker' keyword for all tracking bugs, and a
list of all tracking bugs based on that keyword, would probably be a
good thing.]
