This looks better to me.

I think it would be also sufficient to place a short text and link to
the Trac page, so that the developers that want to use the "Bug
Tracking" link to get to Trac do not have to click once more, but if
this is OK for you, then it's fine.

Another option would be to simply give the link a less alluring name,
like "Trac Bug Tracking System" or "Issue Tracker", or just "Trac".

Should bugs really be reported directly to the developer's list (as
stated in 1. on the new page)? Or to the user's mailing list if they are
not sure that it is a bug?
