Bug#707019: Make blocks and blocked by in bugreport.cgi prettier

Package: debbugs
Severity: wishlist
Control: summary -1 -1

Make the blocks (and blocked by) segments a drawer which is hidden by
default which contains a table of all of the bugs, their package, and
their title.

15:24:55 <daemonkeeper> dondelelcaro: Oh, this wasn't meant as subtle
criticism. It's just the view isn't very helpful anymore now with so
many blocking bugs. After all I'm more or less the worst web designer
you could imagine.
15:25:24 <pinotree> dondelelcaro: "fix blocked by: #nnn: title" and then
                    all the other bugs in new lines, vertically lined up
                    with the first one (ie all the #nnn lined)
15:25:53 <dondelelcaro> daemonkeeper: oh, no worries about the
criticism; it isn't really great looking.
15:26:05 <daemonkeeper> By the way: 100+ more to follow :>
15:26:13 <dondelelcaro> pinotree: the problem with that is that you'd
then have blocking bugs taking up the whole first page
15:26:25 <svuorela> dondelelcaro: as opposed to now? _:)
15:26:39 <dondelelcaro> svuorela: now at least it's as compact as possible
15:26:41 <pinotree> dondelelcaro: at least they would be slightly more readable, imho
15:26:48 <dondelelcaro> what probably would work is a drawer
15:27:06 <dondelelcaro> since if there's more than two or three, you probably don't care about them anyway
15:27:32 <pinotree> daemonkeeper cares about his apache transition bug, though :>
15:27:45 <dondelelcaro> yeah, but you really only care about how many of them are unfixed
15:27:59 <dondelelcaro> and most of the time, you don't really want to see the whole list
15:28:07 <dondelelcaro> and if you do, you can see the whole list with a click
15:28:11 <svuorela> but daemonkeeper is a badass. he don't give a sh*t.
15:28:12 * daemonkeeper got
          which is more helpfpul for that pinotree
15:28:23 <pinotree> hm doesn't pts shows only the open ones currently?
15:28:58 <dondelelcaro> you probably should also be able to select bugs in pkgreport by blocks...
15:29:01 <dondelelcaro> oh well
15:31:56 <daemonkeeper> Reload #661958 if you thought the previous view was bad ... ;)

The sheer ponderousness of the panel's opinion [...] refutes its
thesis far more convincingly than anything I might say. The panel's
labored effort to smother the Second Amendment by sheer body weight
has all the grace of a sumo wrestler trying to kill a rattlesnake by
sitting on it---and is just as likely to succeed.
