Great minds think alike; I'm in the middle of rebuilding Bugzilla for
Humans (johnath's video) as a Popcorn presentation, which can be
translated, edited, remixed etc. much more easily than the original
(which is now out of date in a couple of regards). I think Popcorn is a
better way to go than videos because of the interactivity and remixability.

It's a good question as to whether it's better to do a series of short
screencasts or one long one. Perhaps we need one longer "introduction to
Bugzilla", covering things that most Bugzilla users will need to know,
and then a series of shorter ones covering more specialist topics like
flags, or bugmail filtering, or the API.
