Note that entries in bugzilla don't have to be _phrased_ as bugs; it's
perfectly fine if the title of your bug is:
"Patch to add a frobate button to gtkcolorsel"
And the description is:
"Here's a patch I created.... it's a useful addition because..."
I note that only because we've had a few patches submitted
that are like:
"GtkColorsel is missing a frobate button"
"GtkColorsel is missing a frobate button. This is a bug
because... And, by the way, here's a patch to fix this
No need to force the wording :-) Basically, bugzilla.gnome.org acts as
a TODO list and issue tracker for the GTK team. It's not just about
bugs in the strictest sense.
