I had meant to drop this piece just as the thing about debug_rtx by
purpose. I certainly haven't seen a PR in which these were applicable, and
if we'd really need them we can still ask for this information. I believe
it is more important to keep the instructions short. If we offer too much
good advice about how to send in PRs, nobody will read it and we'll end up
with worse reports.

Do y'all really think this needs to be in the instructions?
