It would be good to explain when to use one vs. the other.  It would
be good to have examples and guidance on how to make the most useful
report.

It would probably help to explain that the new bug-tracking system is
the same as our new project-tracking system, and that bugs are called
issues.  Also that it currently requires a separate registration and
logon.  Someone following the bug-report link from the editor's guide
step pages would likely stumble here, as it's not at all clear where
on the main projects page I would go to report a specific issue.

Since we're still learning the new project system, maybe we need a bug
reporting page on the wiki that provides the guidance and then links
you to the project system page after you have been properly
forewarned/armed.

Lastly, there are several classes of "bug" that are probably best
handled by flagging a page on the wiki, so that guidance would be good
to link in as well.
