    Bug Reporting, Discussions etc.

    The first rule of ardour 3 is don't talk about ardour 3 on the forums.
    There's no code of silence here - its just that web forums are
    incredibly inefficient ways for the development team to interact with
    people. So please use these channels to communicate bugs, workflow
    problems, design ideas and anything else to us:

        * the bug tracker/feature request system (http://tracker.ardour.org/)
        * either of the two ardour mailing lists (ardour-dev is probably
    slightly better) (http://ardour.org/support#mlists)
        * our IRC channel, for realtime chat (and chit-chat) (most active
    during daytime US eastern time)  (http://ardour.org/support#chat)

You might want to add "Don't bother reporting bugs.  We are not going to
care.  Instead, you need to become a registered member of our
browser-centric bug reporting squad and manage entering the problem into
our bug database on your own."
