Specifically relating to the problem reporting system:

We're rolling out a new one.  We've tested it, but clearly it isn't 
perfect.  I'll take a look and see if we can fix the problems you 

One of the issues is that it doesn't integrate with the rest of the site 
as well; it has its own login/password screens, but relies on other 
parts of the system to create accounts.  We can improve on that, I think.

lsb-discuss; the problem reporting system is rather narrowly tailored to 
specific issues encountered during certification.
