Many users submit feature requests to Slashdot through the story submission bin. That's not the "right" place, but it's always going to happen. Suggestion: make this useful by letting them do this via the submissions bin, selecting a "bug report" or "suggestion" (etc) topic, and afterward prompting them to submit it as a bug at SourceForge, but without requiring it (as clicking on the Bugs link on the front page now does). I don't know the degree of overlap, but many readers don't have SF.net accounts, or aren't logged in, and since people submit bug reports via the submissions bin anyhow, this would make it easier to sort them and hopefully benefit from them.
