Description

Hi,

In http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/Report_Bugs is a link to https://trac.pcbsd.org/newticket?type=defect for reporting a bug. This link however does not work (at least if the user clicking it is not logged into the trac system).
If a users wants to create a bug report but getting an error (that is not self-explanatory) while doing so it is very likely that he resign and just does not gives a feedback. (The same if the user has to register in trac before submitting a bug report.)
In my opinion the freebsd bug report system is a good one not only because the user is encouraged to search the bug database before submitting a bug.
So maybe it would be a good idea to add a link for searching the open bug entries in the database and than a second link for reporting it without the need for registration.

Best regards,

Martin

BTW: There is no bug type "Documentation" in the trac system nor a component related with such types of tickets.

This doesn't seem to be an issue. The link works fine for me to report a new bug
