            Bug ID: 383169
           Summary: Use a standardtemplate to guide users unfamiliar with
                    bug tracker style and etiquette
           Product: bugs.kde.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: templates
          Assignee: sysad...@kde.org
          Reporter: pointedst...@zoho.com
                CC: she...@kde.org
  Target Milestone: ---

A lot of novice users file bugs  that tend to be long, rambling, and full of
irrelevant information, which makes them hard to parse. We may benefit from
using a standard template in the description field that guided users through
how to format a reasonable bug report, like this:



SUMMARY
<One sentence summary of the bug>

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. <First, I did this>
2. <Then I did that>
3. <And then I did this other thing>


EXPECTED RESULT
<Here's what I wanted to happen>


ACTUAL RESULT
<Here's what actually happened>


REPRODUCIBILITY
<Here are the configurations/software versions/Linux distros/conditions under
which it doesn't happen>


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
<Logs and other information that may be helpful>



Any specific products and components should of course be free to tweak or
override it.
