 The [http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/newticket NumPy bug reporting
 system] is hard to find on the web and hard to use.  This ticket requests
 some changes to simplify bug reporting for new users.

 Could you add a link to the [http://numpy.scipy.org NumPy project web
 page] that goes to the bug reporting page
 ([http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy developer project page])?

 Since the Trac ticket system will be unfamiliar to most users it would be
 helpful to make a separate bug reporting page that says a bug report is
 called a "ticket".  It should have a search form for searching tickets, a
 link to view a list of active tickets, and an explanation saying you must
 login to create a new ticket / bug report and have a link to register.
 Currently you don't even see the "New Ticket" tab unless you have logged
 in.

 The [http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy sourceforge NumPy page] has bug
 tracking for numarray, no numarray downloads, and no numpy bug tracking.
 This is needlessly confusing.  Could numarray bug tracking be moved to a
 separate numarray sourceforge project?  Could the sourceforge bug tracker
 summary page have a sentence saying bug tracking is handled at scipy.org
 and have a link to that bug tracking page?
