+1 for top of "get involved" page
But to avoid the massive reporting bug we can write in the page a
suggestion to the users, they need to ask first in one of the mailing list
(qgis-user, qgis-developer) instead reporting right away the bug.
In this scenario, user ask first in the mailing list, then if the bug is
real they will report the bug.
