Description: ------------ The bug tracker suggests possibly similar bugs after submitting the form. The current implementation also shows bugs for e.g. Auth if I report something for e.g. HTML_Table. Even if an error is the same in both packages (e.g. a PHP notice caused by the same coding style), it is very unlikely that one of the bugs should not be reported. To keep it short: The way the suggestions are generated should be revised. The suggestions could even be restricted to the package, the package and its subpackage (maybe hard to implement, but interesting for e.g. Structures_DataGrid or Validate), or at least to categories. (To give a real-life example: While submitting this request, a got three hints on pearweb, but also two hints on HTTP_WebDAV_Server and HTTP_Request.)

I would say anyone submitting a bug to "Bug System" or "Website" should get suggestions from all packages, as most new users don't make any such distinction, and this cuts down on dupe bugs quite a bit. I'd say that if you are a pear.dev, it should only search the current package.

Whoever will work on this later: Please note the related request #10943.
