This page is looking good.  Last month on this list, I outlined my idea to
provide a guided interface for filing bugs in an appropriate place without
knowing which packages are involved.  I'd like to see this information form
the basis for such an interface, giving the user a decision tree to guide
them to the point where appropriate information can be collected and
attached to their report.
