The original patch was described in terms of "deprecate its use right
away".  I'd consider reasonable a patch that doesn't attempt to discuss
preferences between bug reporting methods, but rather removes the
discussion of particular methods from bugreport.texi.  That is, removes
the whole section with discussion of gccbug, and with it the specific
mention of GNATS, and changes the "Where to Report Bugs" section, removing
mention of the mailing lists and making the total contents of that section 
something like:

  Please read @uref{http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html} for bug reporting
  instructions before you post a bug report.  A copy of this file is
  included with GCC releases.
