‘Hendrix’ is a new feedback-collecting mechanism for mozilla.org, designed for people who just want to leave a quick comment or rant, and can’t be bothered with Bugzilla. The idea here is to lower the barrier to giving feedback, and simultaneously try and keep some of the less useful bugs out of Bugzilla.
There’s a test installation here.
Hendrix is a web-to-news gateway, currently posting to the newsgroup netscape.public.mozilla.test, so this is where you should look for the form output. When it’s deployed, it will eventually post to more appropriate group. The two current candidates are netscape.public.mozilla.wishlist, and netscape.public.beta.feedback which, while the name isn’t massively appropriate, does have the advantage of being abandoned. Ideas welcomed.
I haven’t worked on the styling; it would be great if someone would do a stylesheet for it, perhaps so it fitted in with the mozilla.org look. Everyone can have a go – pass the “&stylesheet=<url>” parameter. And yes, I have protected this against XSS. ;-)
If you want to play with the code, just check mozilla/webtools/hendrix out of CVS. It requires ExecCGI turned on, and the Template Toolkit and Email::Send Perl modules installed.
