Description (last modified by scribu)

I just submitted my first bug report to jQuery today. They use trac too, but they added a couple of things to the ticket creation page which I think would be pretty useful here too:

  • big red notice: "Are you in the right place?"
  • automatically search for similar tickets before pressing submit

See http://bugs.jquery.com/newticket

Didn't we have some instructions that appeared with a new ticket, within the last year or so? I remember something but don't see it any more.
