Do you feel bad because of the Python docs?

I've tried twice to register with the bug tracker -- including
just before sending this post. Both times I got something like
this:

    Subject: Failed issue tracker submission
    From: Python tracker <roundup-admin at psf.upfronthosting.co.za>
    Date: Wed, 06 Mar 2013 00:56:44 +0000

    An unexpected error occurred during the processing
    of your message. The tracker administrator is being
    notified.

So, it's not all that easy to report bugs for me, anyway. I'd
given up, prior, but reading this thread I thought I'd try one
more time.

I had wanted to report doc bugs, too, as I used to do copy and
line editing. I seem to be able to find typos and such rather
easily, but reporting said bugs -- not so easy.

Something seems amiss, I'd say. It may be just me, but the point
still stands.
