Robert is completely right here. Please restrict comments in
bugzilla to technical comments only -- not meta-comments about
proper use of bugzilla.

Also, I don't support the requirement that anybody should avoid
raising issues bugzilla unless they have had prior discussion on
the public-html list. Part of the purpose of setting up bugzilla
was to enable people to raise issues without needing to post them
to the public-html list. Telling people that they first need to
discuss issues on the public-html list before posting them to
bugzilla would completely defeat that purpose.
