Description Harald Koester 2013-08-19 22:06:15 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
[1] In Bug Submission Assistant select component WWW.
[2] Select sub component BUGZILLAASSISTANT.
[3] Now you have to select a LibreOffice version and an operating system in order to go on with the bug description. This does not make sense because in this context it does not make sense to select these two points. 

Expected behavior:
If the Component WWW is selected it should be possible to describe a bug without selecting a LO version and an operating system.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

is the "unspecified" version available in the Bugzilla Assistant?
I thonk you should use that.
Comment 2 Harald Koester 2013-08-20 14:06:47 UTC
An unspecified LO version is not available. Available versions are: alphas, betas RCs and releases of 4.x.y, releases of all 3.6.x and "all versions" of 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5.
Comment 3 tommy27 2013-08-20 14:24:56 UTC
mmmhhh... probably an erroneous deletion of the "unspecified" version from the Assistant.

I confirm that the "unspecified" version is present in the freedeskop bug tracker ( try on https://bugs.freedesktop.org/ )
Comment 4 tommy27 2013-08-20 14:34:05 UTC
I confirm that the "unspecified" version item in missing in the BugZilla Assistant. I have reported this to the QA list.

regarding the O/S you could choose the "All" item.

adding Joel Madero to CC.
is this something Robinson Tryon can manage?
Comment 6 Rob Snelders 2013-08-22 21:05:07 UTC
Please use the correct WWW-component as defined to make sure it shows up in the correct lists.
Comment 7 Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2013-08-27 17:12:35 UTC
Ah yes, this is another side effect of us sticking a dozen different projects into a single project in the bugtracker... :-/

For now, I've re-enabled the 'unspecified' version in the BSA for all components. To file a bug against 'WWW', please set the version to 'unspecified' and the OS to 'All'.

(The long-term fix is for us to split 'WWW' out into a separate project under Bugzilla, but that will probably wait until we are able to migrate to a separate instance of Bugzilla)

Harald -- I hope this patches-up the BSA to your satisfaction. If not, just reopen this bug and/or throw something at me (over email, please :-)
