For Bugzilla I don't know, currently a list only is available with admin 
permissions. May be some day we will find a way to get the data. 
Currently Frontend programmed  Components are fine, we do not need new 
Components very often.

 From BugReport_Details. We are just learning, what subcomponent for 
what component might change very often, we will have to find a solution.

What about the

See Commponents, but we need a new Version every week (or so).

Souds good, that will not cause problems

I wanted to say "Quite usual Links as you might type into the URL input

Me to. But that should not be the problem, I heard several suggestions 
in between.

I suggest that I / We add several details to the 
and in parallel we go on testing some modules, that we can connect soon 
to a complete front end.

A first test I would like to do:
We need Help texts that appear when the Component has been selected from 
the picker (like in Bugzilla). My dream  would be a proceeding reading 
texts from a source like a short Wiki Template text, at it's end a Link 
to a Wiki Page with a more elaborated explication (opens in new Window 
or Browser Tab).

That would be very flexible and also available for the Subcomponents. 
It's not necessary to read that source for each report, update every few 
hours would be enough.

Can you contribute come ideas how that could work so that I can create 
some examples?

You also should think about a possibility to define what subcomponents 
are available for what components in a flexible way.
