Auto-reports are bad. I'm not aware of many project that asks for
"auto-reports". AFAIK they are Ubuntu, Mozilla, bloated desktop
environments and perhaps a few other, while IIRC Ubuntu is the only
project that makes reporting bugs manually hard, more or less
impossible.

It's complicated to report a bug manually to the Ubuntu bug tracker.

Ubuntu is the only FLOSS project I know, that makes manually reporting
bugs more or less impossible.

If you know any other project where a user cannot simply create an
account, log in and easily report a bug manually, let me know.

If it nowadays should be easy to manually report a bug to the Ubuntu
bug tracker, please provide a step by step guide and share how easy it
has become.
