We shouldn't tell people to send e-mail to gcc-bugs


It seems to me that e-mail to gcc-bugs@gcc.gnu.org is basically lost in
the noise.  It seems to me that we should not recommend that people send
bug reports there; the chances that anything will happen are much
smaller than the already small chance that anybody will fix their
bugzilla bug report.  I propose the following patch to
http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html.

Does anybody think this would be unwise?

Ian
