Here's the place where I may bring back to attention the proposed
system of helpers in the user forums. People who help unexperienced
users to write bug reports and will also help them along if the devs
ask questions during the lifetime of that bug in bugzilla. A user who
has done this once (ideally from the start of a bug until its end)
will be eager to do it again when he stumbles across another bug. He
will also be eager to "teach" his new knowledge to other users. This
way we will get a larger community of "bug reporters" than by any

There must not be  a fixed "Bug Friends" group, this "mentoring" can
be done by all experienced users.
