I'd not add this:

The issue is that it might be non-obvious that the CONTRIBUTING file
contains instruction for the issue tracker compared to just contributing
patches and some projects actually accept questions in GitHub's issue
tracker. So the users come to the GitHub repository, want to open the
issue with their question and see this:


Then they think: I don't have a bug to report and I don't want to
suggest anything and thus they "open a regular issue".

And then they see the empty input and happily ask their question. I
would not assume malicious intent there.

With the new issue template they'll see "Question" in the list and
think: "A-ha! That's what I need", click on it and actually see the
warning text and then hopefully stop creating the issue.

So that paragraph you suggested might discourage users that actually
read and understand if something is *slapped in their face* from HAProxy
and does not help with users that don't read at all. We don't want to
discourage the former group with such a passive-aggressive paragraph.

Best regards
