Like I said in my other mail, it's not hugely important for the kind of 
reporter who is not already a developer, and who knows, maybe that can be fixed 
as well. It's not like Identity is universally beloved.

But that's the _point_. There needs to be a kind of division between user issue 
reporting and developer/development activity.

Yes, gitlab issues is an all-round aenemic feature, but I could live with it 
for a tasks replacement, but not for a issue reporter replacement.

And users get would sent to bugs.kde.org anyway; no normal user is going to 
something called "invent.kde.org" to report a bug, unless there's very specific 
guidancce to send them there.
