That is the mechanism we use to track reported problems, so using trac should be an essential part of the training any volunteer tester should get. While everyone likes nicely-researched and well-written problem reports, that shouldn't be an obstacle. If there's information missing on a ticket, people working on it can ask for more. But if the ticket's not there at all, we won't know there's a problem to fix.
Nobody is disputing that bug reports should go in the one true place

I'll admit i'm not a fan of olpcnews.com, but they are where new
contributors end up early on in their contributing -- if only because
they show up in many search results.
