I am of the opinion that the Applications Database and Bugzilla should 
be more closely related and that a bug reported in Bugzilla should 
automagically appear in the Applications Database entry for the 
product.  If there is no AppDb entry, the bug will be rejected, on 
input, because there is no entry.  This allows better searches for bugs, 
howtos and workarounds.  At the present time, you have to manually add 
bugs to the Applications Database and some users and testers, myself 
included, have forgot to do this or due to time constraints did not do it.

Yuck!  I HATE hacky patches and asking users to implement them.  I hope 
that someone is looking into fixing this in a sensible fashion from the 
development side.

Please do.

I was not aware of this situation.  I definitely will look further 
before sending users to the bugzilla.

Users are the REASON developers exist.  Without them, all of us on this 
project have no reason to exist.  If you PM me, I can tell you what 
happened to me recently when users decided to leave a product.

Now this is a real problem.

And does not make a happy user. 

Thank you for your suggestions.
