With the band-aids you outline in place: do you think it would it be beneficial to have a liaison holding users’s hands through the process, _then_ triaging to developers by contacting them with the information they need? (This is something proposed previously on this thread, and something I’ve already said I’m willing to do.)
IOW, someone to bridge between end users and developers and (at least try to) help bring some order to the chaos.
