No wonder you find it troublesome. That's for SLE users. We here are
(supposedly) openSUSE users:

Could you please elaborate more? I don't understand that. I filed a bug
at (with all its strange registration process,
which indeed does not really look like an OSS community). I nowhere
found a hint that as a openSUSE user I have to go elsewhere, I just
followed the links. What is the difference between the links, the
content seems pretty much the same.

Our bugzilla system has several "faces". There is one for openSUSE,
another for SLE... They are basically the same, but have different
colours and probably different options for entering a bug.

(For me this just proves my point that the openSUSE infrastructure
leaves a lot to be improved.)

Well, once you get used to things we don't use the long road anymore,
but jump direct to the place - meaning that we seasoned users do not see
the route you took or the problems you found. You are in a better
position than us to report those problems.

Let me see. You went here:

then you hit login. This takes you to a Microfocus page. I suppose that
here you clicked on "create an account", which takes you to a SUSE page.

I suppose that going through those domain changes is confusing.

It asks for:

First Name*
Last Name*
Company* [] I am not associated with a company
Email Address*

and login info:

Repeat Password*

Security Question*
Security Answer*
Repeat Security Answer*

I don't find those questions invasive, but as I did not go any further I
don't know if there are more questions ahead.

Cheers / Saludos,
