The "Package affected" <select> (drop-down) on the bug report page has 359 entries.
Even with the non-breaking spaces in front of sub-entries, this is user-unfriendly.
The select should be split into a <select> for the main category, and an additional (new) <select> that will update based on the main category.

If you have no idea how to do this, the following jQuery code might help you get started:

$("#first-choice").change(function() {
  $("#second-choice").load("getter.php?choice=" + $("#first-choice").val());

Then, in getter.php simply print() the "<option value="...">...</option>" entries that should show up for $_GET['choice'].

I agree this list is very exceesive and should be split. Personally I can't think of a decent middle ground atm, perhaps when (or rather if), the bug reporting system is updated to the "new" design, this could be a task

Split the "package affected" dropdown into categories.
