It's there already. Since you don't seem to know that it means you've
either never entered a Wine bug (but you made claims that seem to
indicate the contrary), or that you yourself don't read the instructions
on how to enter a bug. So why do you expect others to?
So I stand by my assessement that you have unrealistically high
expectations of others, and that going to a separate website is not part
of the normal workflow for entering a bug.
I'll also add that I've been entering Wine bugs for about as long
as is possible and I was not aware of the requirement to add the
bugs in the AppDB.
Note that I'm not saying it wouldn't be nice to have the AppDB and
Bugzilla nicely cross-referenced or that we shouldn't strive for it.
What I'm saying is:
* As things stand you cannot act all surprised that it's not the case.
* Putting all the blame on the bug reporters like you seem to be doing
is not how you will improve the situation.
