Well, if I come to a site to report a bug, I am not exactly looking for
help or support, am I? in particular, if there is a link "Bug tracking",
it seems more obvious to me to follow that link.
Well, I guess this is a minor issue, and maybe everybody who clicks "Bug
Tracking" will sooner or later also click on "Getting Help/Support"...

Yes, this explains it - as soon as you have got to that page.

I think that a simple solution would be to put a link onto the Trac
Timeline page that says something like: "To report bugs, please refer to
the mailing list. This tracker is mostly for the OpenMPI developers." or
something like that. But I believe that this might not be as simple as
it sounds in Trac.
