But perhaps we could direct to a simpler search screen that leveraged our Bugzilla short_desc auto-complete functionality across all projects?

Reporting a bug has become very complex since some projects are on Bugzilla, some others on GitHub. It now requires advanced knowledge or interest in the IDE composition. It's become too hard to provide such a link to users and present them easily how to report a bug.
Also, I think it's interesting to try to capture other kinds of contributions (including donations or promoting corporate membership). Linking to the existing "Get involved" page allows to cover all that with very little effort, and no initial knowledge about the IDE for the readers.
