Summary0006315: Insufficient Default Fields

Since each site will have it's own unique requirements on what fields are needed to report a bug, some of the default fields will nearly alway be insufficient, or inapplicable. I suggest that the ability to have custom fields be extended with a TextArea item (this has been reported elsewhere), and that the default fields be themselves configurable in the way that user-define custom fields are.

So Mantis would ship with a few custom fields inserted by default. That way end users can add fields they need or remove any of the defaults, since all fields would then be managed through the existing custom field interface.

TagsNo tags attached.

IMHO I think the initial setup should be clean and simple. The initial installation should NOT be with custom fields all switch on by default.

The reason for this, if it's simple to use for first time users more people will like the defect tracker and gains popularity, which is in turn good for development.
