Hi David,

> Of the 535 bugs listed as enhancements, 35 include the "RFE" designation; the remaining are identified by the severity designation "enhancement." Thus, I wouldn't necessarily rely on that term to locate all the RFEs that have been submitted over the years. Better to search for bugs with a severity of "enhancement."
> @Frank: it is duplicating effort in bugzilla to suggest that enhancements should include "RFE" in their descriptions, given that bugzilla includes enhancement as a severity level. Moreover, adding a note to the wiki that implies that adding this is common practice, when it overwhelmingly isn't, is rather presumptuous on your part. Why not encourage users to apply the feature that bugzilla already provides?

you are right. The only benefit of the RFE prefix would be in the email
notifications, which only include the severity level, if it changes.

Feel free to improve the section.
