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.
But, as it turns out, it was probably better to bring your concerns to
lsb-discuss; the problem reporting system is rather narrowly tailored to
specific issues encountered during certification.
