Hi developers,

I tried reporting a problem on https://bugs.freedesktop.org/, but I am
unsure if I did it right and if anyone is receiving any notice about it.
Nobody is assigned and nobody is Cc'ed.

The bug is https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87250

Do you think the proper people have been informed?

Related to my experience reporting a bug:

It would be nice if there was a more approachable way to report bugs than
that Bugzilla interface for those of us that do not know the source code by
heart or just want to report a bug without being almost interrogated with
20 questions… My guess is it could scare many people away from reporting

Do other, more simple interfaces to Bugzilla exist? Where the interface
only asks the most important questions and allow the user to only answer
the questions he or she actually has an answer to, and leaving the rest to
those that know what to fill in in the other fields?
