23 I tend to agree.
25 Want to make something nice to help with bugzilla? How about a page
26 with some good queries already setup for different things that would be
27 common. Say something like searching for all bugs that are NEW that
28 have EBUILD in the KEYWORDS? How about all bugs that have been
29 REOPENED? All bugs that have been RESOLVED-TESTREQUEST?
31 I think these pre-built queries would be much better than yet another
32 page to find bugs.
