It pains me to say this, but if we want any kind of bug reports from 
non-core contributers, GitHub issues are probably the way to go. The 
extreme suckiness of their issue tracker is outweighed by the fact that 
reporting bugs in bugzilla is super-painful; you have to know it exists, 
create a user account, figure out what the right component is and then 
finally file the actual issue. By contrast, with GH you more or less 
just click "New Issue".
