I don't think the problem is anonymity, but the effort required to
register. The BTS could require that you give an email address, but it
shouldn't require you to create yet another username/password pair that
you have to remember.

I have a few times not bothered to report some pretty clear bugs just
because I didn't see any easy enough way to do that. Of course that
meant that the bug didn't get fixed, but since I was only testing their
software (or auditing their sources) I didn't really care about that.
For Dovecot I do want bug reports from people like me.
