bzimport added a project: MediaViewer.
bzimport set Reference to bz62578.

IIRC this is a product decision that is on purpose. I'd ask Fabrice before fixing :)

Yes, it is clear from the code that it is intentional, but it is very confusing IMO.

Please bring this up during the design meetings instead and/or on the mailing list. I don't think that filing a bug is the right channel of communication for a disagreement with an intentional UX design decision.

Has this been discussed? I too found it surprising.

No, I meant to raise this on design-l but forgot.

CC-ing Pau; any thoughts? There are a couple complaints about this on the project talk page as well.

Gilles added a project: Multimedia.

Mass-removing the Multimedia tag from MediaViewer tasks, as this is now being worked on by the Reading department, not Editing's Multimedia team.
