It's worth point out that commenting on the AUR is "easier" for some
users than using the bug tracker.

However, my own personal opinion is this: if you're not willing to
_learn_ to use the bug tracker, then you're probably not willing to
_learn_ Arch as well. We always proported to be a distro for
knowlegable users. So let's trust the users know what they're doing,
or are willing to learn. If something being "too much work" turns
someone away, maybe they aren't suited to Arch.
