When I first set up the play area (sandbox), it passed through my mind 
that c1/c2 might be mistaken for the hotspot components.  I've renamed 
them to avoid the confusion.

At this point, we're just accepting contributions, and decided to just 
make an initial category called other for that.  When we start using 
bugzilla to accept general bugs, we'll add those additional components 
such as c1/c2 for hotspot.  Soon, we'll be asking the various groups to 
start defining the components they'd like to use.

Not sure I'm following.  Bringing up bug 100000:

has a link on the component label, which is:

That page has the info about the product and component:

This is a sandbox where you can file bogus bugs to learn
the Bugzilla interface.

Component 	Default Assignee 	Default QA Contact

component1 	watch-sandbox-component1 at 	
The first component of the sandbox product.

component2 	watch-sandbox-component2 at 	
The second component of the sandbox product.
