If the developers think that the current system provides enough
information for them to fix the bugs, then perhaps we don't need to
make any updates to the system for the devs, which is good to know.

My thought was that a cleaner, more visual display of the information
could be helpful for people doing QA (both on the team or just regular
users) to understand the helpfulness of narrowing-down the precise
point at which a bug was introduced into the code. The FDO interface
can be very cryptic!

I don't know if an easier-to-read interface would increase our ability
to attract users to join us and help us retain people as members of
the QA Team, but it is one of the things I thought about when making a
mock-up. We definitely need to grow our ranks to be able to address
the influx of bug reports.
