Hi Caroline (and all),

The ReportingBugs page does actually have instructions (under "Filing 
bugs at" to use the no-redirect option.

However, I think is really lacking in that it 
has no "report a bug" link at all. If I wasn't subscribed to this 
mailing list I would have no idea what to do. I see in 
<> that 
keeping the button but redirecting to the wiki page is also an option, 
and I think that would be far more helpful. Not sure if this is the 
right venue for talking about that, though.
