Small Steps (or: still no bmo reorg)

A long time ago, tried to get the "Mozilla Application Suite" product renamed and reorganized for SeaMonkey on Mozilla's Bugzilla system. After some poking in different directions, this triggered discussions about a bigger reorg of bugzilla components and even products, ending in a nice proposal, but this got stalled due to a missing script for making this as smooth as possible (i.e. not disturbing saved queries too much and moving/merging components across products) - and due to fear or broken FF3 planning queries.

Because of this, Bugzilla still largely sucks for SeaMonkey due to wrong components and even a wrong product name being used.

A small step towards correcting this has been done now though (thanks to justdave!): The "Enter Bug" product selection describes "Mozilla Application Suite" as SeaMonkey and uses the SeaMonkey logo for it.

I hope this will enable newbies to Bugzilla to at least find the right product for filing their SeaMonkey bugs under.

And maybe, some time in the future, there is still hope for getting a real bmo reorg done so that the product/components structure fits reality better. I won't stop to hope for better times...
