Description Björn Michaelsen 2011-07-21 08:03:35 UTC
easy / accurate bug filing

Background: We need ways of making it easy to file bugs, particularly those with a correct platform, version, etc. information. We should have this information in the help/about dialog. It would be ideal if we could combine the vendor, platform, version, (java version) into a single string - and crunch this into a base64 blob that is not read-able (with a checksum) - such that people cannot easily get the paste wrong, and/or fake their version number. Far better even than this (I suspect) would be a "file a bug" link in help/about. Extending this we could really use a nice javascripty web page with a flow for filing different types of bugs with all the required information to help people create really high quality bug reports.

Skills: build, simple C++, Javascript

I'm interested of course; we should build on Daniel Neel's initial html/javascripty work here I think.

need to be updated (also can it be cut down simplified too)? If so, please reopen and reassign appropriately.

I updated BugReport as shown at http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/index.php?title=BugReport&action=historysubmit&diff=37238&oldid=35552
If this is not enough, please re-open the ticket and I'll try to figure it out. If you have time to give me hints about what I did wrong, I will be greatly appreciated.
