And what if the provided information isn't good enough? That will create a 
terrible mess. Sorry, but I think unless we fixed all problems people able to 
communicate in english, there is little need to make the process more 

I'd think if people e.g. only speaking german turn to kde-de at kde.org and find 
someone who can reproduce their problem, that other person can go to bugzilla 
and file it. If the bug is only reproducible on that one specific german 
speaking person, there is little value in it anyway ;(
