Aargh, this is very bad! I'm always logged in when I visit sourceforge 
(and I assume
that most of us are), I wasn't aware of the fact that if you are not 
logged in you
get no indication whatsoever that it is possible to submit bugs.

Do we have control over what is on that page, i.e. could we add a note 
the top saying "If you want to submit a new bug please log in first"?

Otherwise I think the "bugs" link on should go to a 
local page
which explains this before sending people off to the sourceforge
