Yeah, sorry -- I've been testing out how to store the data/params file
in git and/or salt, so the interface for vm144 (bugzilla-test) might
be slightly broken today as I get a new test VM up and running. I'll
try to get vm144 put back together by tonight.

I don't have anything in the data/ dir, just a db dump. I can ask for
that in the next db dump from FDO.

I'll investigate.

My (one) saved search is working for me. Not sure what you mean by
"using tags at the bottom".

I'll investigate

Yep -- I only have a db dump right now.

The filesystem underlying the VM is slower than we used previously.
I've chatted w/cloph about it, and I feel reassured that we can get
those speeds back up to at least the level of the previous install.

It seems pretty visible to me in my browser. Specific page? (or
screenshot would work :-)

I don't want the text to steal the spotlight on each page. Any
suggestions on how we could better present it to the users?

I can add it to the account creation page, but I'm reticent to put a
big blob of text on the front page of the bug tracker (like the
'Notes' section). I just think people are going to get lost in all
that text.

It's tough, because I agree that there's a lot of useful information
for us to give to bug reporters, but I think we have to be very
selective so we don't frighten people away... :-)
