communication is the key here. We have experienced QA volunteers who
know how to set the fields and we have volunteers with less experience.
I suggest that we clean up the various fields and update the how submit
a bug page with a clear and updated explanation of what we think is best.

If somebody is not sure it is best to let the fields unset or open and
ask on the QA list for support/help.
