What link leads to bugzilla ? I didnt see it here:

Im not a fan of opening bugzilla up to the ignorant masses (users).

Yes we are. But we are also still following the unwritten scientific
programming approach of 'u found it, u fix.'
So bugzilla is not a place where we track all of our mistakes for
pedagogical/administrative/financial purposes.
Of course there is a time limit; so if u found it and tried hard enough
to fix it but couldnt then report it.

Heres my blurb on bug reports:
We gratefully accept detailed bug reports that contain short input
files for reproducible bugs. In fact those are our favorite ones :)
