Thanks, Carl.

The issue tracker is read only; the correct approach is to post the
users list. We do it this way to avoid polluting the tracker with
hundreds of duplicates, feature requests disguised as bugs etc, which
has happened to many other trackers. (We hope to allow registration
at some future date).

Thanks also for reminding us about the busted login link. We've
allocated someone to clean up the .org site a bit next week.
