Default Re: Bug Tracker for Nvidia Linux driver related bugs?

Yeah I can imagine that there is one, but why is it closed? I remember the time I used to search for my problem in this forum. The Problem is that I don't know if somebody did a bug report already and this alone may lead to many duplicate reports the nvidia devs get over mail. Not to speak about the "trash" threads a user has to crawl through because bugs and other stuff is mixed in this forum.
The other thing is that I remember a very fast response from one nvidia dev but I wondered about this email communication. How much information is going to be lost because the dev is writing to somebody personally.
I am sure that many examples can be added to this to finalize, that such a system would make sense, not only for the users but also (if not even more) for the devs.
