I agree that requiring a login to report a bug is a pain. Reporting via e-mail is a different kind of pain. PerlMonks could get an RT login and provide a link for "submit this thread as an RT bug report" that would prompt for a distribution name and text to go in the bug report below the boiler-plate text + link to the thread in question. Then some vetting would be required to prevent duplicates or invalid submissions. Perhaps just require some PerlMonks-cabal-subset-member approval for the submission to be sent (which would post a reply noting this submission and linking to the generated bug).
Heh, perhaps we should just have an e-mail-based RT/PerlMonks gateway server similar to the usenet gateway theorbtwo wrote (only for selected and vetted threads, of course).
Well, I'm not going to write any of this so it'd require a pmdevil's dedication to make it happen so I won't hold my breath, but I like the idea. :)
