[webkit-dev] Reporting FCKeditor related bugs

It is really nice to see that FCKeditor is almost running with the nightly.
There are still some bugs, and before I do any move, I would like to be sure
this is something acceptable.

I've always tried to create bug reports whithout associating them to
FCKeditor. I simply got a buggy thing in the editor, and reducted it as much
as possible to generate precise reports.

All we know how reductions are important. And we also know that their
creation take a lot of time. So, the report of bugs were going pretty slow.

I've noted instead that, for the TinyMCE editor, there are many generic bugs
strictly specifying TinyMCE compatibility. Something like "TinyMCE: Format
pulldown doesn't work". Those reports have not so much information. Many
times just a line of descrition of the bug.

I have a list of bugs of FCKeditor with Safari. Should I start filling
simple "FCKeditor: ..." reports for all of them? 

In these way we would all have a clear compatibility status, and in the mean
time myself, and others interested would be working for the regressions.

Thanks for the information,
