Description Jiri Moudry 2002-12-25 20:54:51 UTC
Description of problem:
The "Component Text" field does not "override choice in component selection box"
as advertised.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Don't know; one used at redhat Bugzilla at 1200PST Dec 25, 2002

How reproducible:
Tried three times with identical results

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to report a bug in "login" for a Red Hat Phoebe release
2. There is no "login" component; enter "login" in the "Component Text" field
Actual results:
After clicking "Commit", a "You have to select a component" error message
appears. Selecting a "Gnome desktop" component does not help. To report a bug, I
had to clear the "login" component text.

Expected results:
The Component Text field contents should be used for a component name. 

Additional info:

Whatever you type in the component text box needs to still be a valid component 
from the list box above. It is primarily intended to be a short cut instead of 
searching through the sometimes long list. I should document that in the form 
for people who do not know what that field is for. In your case "login" was not 
a valid component and is the reason for the error message.

Changed documentation on the enter bug page to better explain this.
