Especially if someone like myself is already registered to the mailing
list, I don't feel the need to go and register into a bugtracking system
and have my email verified yet again.

Nice and simple is good. I'd include a couple of other fields to make it
easy to get useful info, like dovecot version and OS. But I'd really
prefer to just email reports in to the list.

Perhaps it can just be integrated with the maillist login page?
