Same situation of explanation of setting "$g_bug_report_page_fields". In my opinion, is necessary add "eta" on the explanation of setting.

There is at least one more bug in this list: There is no field duplicate_id.
There are also bugs in Administrator Guide (display.xml), e.g. category instead of category_id

I'm wondering if it would not be better to avoid explicitly listing the fields, referencing the actual list in the manage columns page - we are bound to face this type of issues again and again as code evolves, so it becomes a maintenance liability.

Just asking, I'm not an expert on MantisBT: What is the method for know the names of all posibilities to display if remove that list? It's been listed in other point of documentation or the webadmin needs read the code for found the words?
It's possible to generate the documentation dynamically depending on the options available?

Goto page Manage > Mangage Configuration > Manage Columns
or page My Account > Manage Columns

Great. In that case, the documentation might indicate that the user can see all the options in that section.

OFF TOPIC: Can you explain me how are you making "quotes" in bugnotes?

MantisBT 2.1 will introduce experimental support for Markdown.
It is already enabled on this installation.
This is how it works for end users https://guides.github.com/features/mastering-markdown/

didaquis,
please use the forums for such kind of questions (refer to http://www.mantisbt.org/support.php for links and further details).
