If you are within list/list.html.tmpl, it is likely that you already
have an array of bugs available for use.  The variables available all
come from the cgi's, and you probably don't have to change anything,
just understand what and how info is being provided.  

If you provide the name of the template, and the scope of the use,
perhaps it would be easier to answer that specific question.  

For products, usually [% bug.product %] is all you need to do if you
have bug.bug_id available.
