When one thinks about roundup users you need to remember that web interface
use will be small compared to email. This remark applies to items in the
schema, such as component or version or platform -- the email user will not
be setting these. They need 'not set' defaults so that a developer doing
triage can set them later.

The problem with the patch attached business is that many will submit the
patch by email attachment and they won't see any checkbox to check. Yes,
they could do it on the title line as in

Subject: blah blah [patch=yes]

but my users rarely know about this.

One cannot actually see the class list unless logged in as admin; if not
logged in at all they can't see half of it. I don't know the admin pw.
Anyway, this may limit the useful replies to Stefan's request for input.

I'm unclear about the version field. I think Martin said that should be only
past versions, indicating the version in which the person found the bug. For
an rfe it isn't going to make sense, so again it needs a not-set.

I think there was consensus that we don't need 'platform' (?). I hope not;
it would be a maintenance nightmare.
