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.
