Bug Description

MOTU would like to use LP for new package requests. We were going to open a new product but kiko said that filing a bug against ubuntu would be better and then track them with tags. However, this does add a big complication that users have to know the right tag to use and need to learn/remember to set the tag. Most of the new package requests are "drive-bys" and are not generally from experienced LP users.

My request is that it would be possible to set the tag via URL as in +filebug?field.tags=universe-request

I'm not sure if this is related to Bug #54359 or not but the main issue is getting down to 1 URL that we can give people to file a new package request. As we would really like to get this operational soon it would be great to get feedback on feasability.

Bjorn, could this be done as a fix-it-friday bug?

Perhaps this should be something like: +filebug-advanced?field.tag=foo instead of a parameter of the normal +filebug form.

Yes, it's quite easy to do.

It's probably best to start with +filebug-advanced, yes. It's not hard
to make it work with +filebug as well, but I'm not sure about the UI. To
+filebug-advanced we can add a tag widget which will make it clear, but
I'm not sure what to do in +filebug. It can be confusing if it works,
but there's no indication of that a tag will be added.

A fix is in the review queue.

This bug is now fixed in the beta. It's possible to specify using field.tags=sometag as a query parameter in the URL. This works for both the advanced and the normal +filebug page.
