Should the "assigned" field be available to normal users? I'd think
either it should be clearly marked as "optional", or only committers
should be able to set it, others should merely be able to see whom
it's been assigned to.
Otherwise the interface looks fine. But an important thing about a
bug-tracking system like Bugzilla is that duplicate bugs can be marked
/ merged so the database doesn't fill with redundant bugs (and they
can all be marked "resolved" when the bug is resolved). Also, bugs
can be voted for, so that you know which bugs most bother users.
Perhaps you have these features, only not on the bug-filing page.
Some feature to help the user find similar bugs before filing the
report would be useful too.
