This is Steve Gehrman’s idea, not mine. From an interview with The Apple Blog:
TAB: How do you find Apple’s bug reporting system? Is it as effective and efficient as their end user products?
SG: It’s nothing special. It’s just a web form. It’s actually not that great as it’s not as easy as just sending an email. You can’t easily just paste in a screenshot for example. It’s also kind of slow and requires you to upload a system profiler report, and you have to fill in the OS X build number. I wish it was a client app that would just find that info on it’s own.
Me too. I bet it would make me more willing to submit bug reports — maybe even enjoy them the way I enjoy blog posting with MarsEdit.
