Make Bugzilla Pretty: A Contest

by Max Kanat-Alexander (mkanat)

Hello out there, developers and designers! After many years of working on Bugzilla’s usability, we have finally come to the point where we think that it’s time…we want to make Bugzilla look nice. Gone are the days when it is OK for open-source software to be functional but unattractive–Bugzilla needs a UI that not only works well, but also looks great!

To this end, we are having a contest for designers, to see who can come up with the best new design for Bugzilla. It’s called Make Bugzilla Pretty!

You don’t have to know anything about HTML or Bugzilla to enter (though it helps), you just have to be able to redesign and submit an image to us.

With your entry, you could be giving the world a great-looking open-source bug-tracking system, impacting the lives of millions of developers, forwarding the cause of open-source in the new decade, and getting some sweet promotion for yourself in the process!

We look forward to seeing what you come up with!
