Description:
Please make 2 changes to the project page for the "All Projects" (project=0) <https://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?string=&project=0>. From what I can tell, both changes can be made on the web interface.

1) Please add the following columns to the Tasklist for that project: Opened, Status, Comments, Votes, and Last Edited.
The full list of columns should be: Toggle Selected, ID, Project, Task Type, Category, Severity, Summary, Opened, Status, Comments, Votes, and Last Edited. The only difference between the columns for "All Projects" and for "Arch Linux" should be that Project is the 3rd column.

2) Please add the following text to the Introductory Message field on the project page:
"This page lists bugs and feature requests (tasks) for all Arch Linux projects. If You want to add a task, use the project switcher to select the appropriate project."

The space is blank and looks funny.


Reasoning:
This page would be more useful if it had better information.

How it should be: anyone searching the bugtracker should be able to see in one place all tasks related to a their search, regardless of what project they're in, and be able to see in one place when each one was opened, how many comments it has, and when it was last edited.

How it is now: you can select "All Projects" to see in one place all tasks related to a your search. But the list output doesn't show whether a task was opened 8 years ago or today unless you open the page for it. You need to search by project if you want your search results list output to include when each one was opened and last edited.

Bug searching shouldn't have to be so *hard*. No one should have to do the same search twice for an issue with a library, and 3 times if it has to do with makepkg.

I would like to be able to refer a newbie to a definitive place where they can search for bugs in a simple, easy and straightforward way.

Somewhere in between the people who read every arch-dev-public email and the people who can not or will not follow the guidelines, are the rest of us who would genuinely like to report bugs but aren't sure where they should go.
This task depends upon

Each report has an ID, so  FS#40000  is more recent than  FS#10000 .

> include when each one was opened and last edited.
Why does it matter?

> No one should have to do the same search twice for an issue with a library, and 3 times if it has to do with makepkg.
I don't understand why can't you search open and closed tasks in one go. You can then sort the results list.

I realize I did not explain this well.

The "All Projects" search page is missing features the other searches have.

You can see the difference by going to the "All Projects" page https://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?project=0
Then compare the columns with the "Arch Linux" project page https://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?project=1

These are the missing columns: Opened, Status, Comments, Votes, and Last Edited.

Also, there is no message on the project page. Please add this text to the Introductory Message field:
"This page lists bugs and feature requests (tasks) for all Arch Linux projects. If You want to add a task, use the project switcher to select the appropriate project."

Thank you.

Flyspray offers the freedom to configure it on a per project basis. But for a consistent user experience I think projects should be configured similar.

There is no 'Compare project configuration'-page yet, but a sql query like:

select project_id, project_title, visible_columns, visible_fields, default_order_by from flyspray_projects;

should help making similar settings across projects.
