Should I not report issues here because I can't code PHP? Or does my experience here not count?

At the end of the day, the idea needs to turn into code. Somebody needs 
to write it. It doesn't matter how big the interested company is if 
noone codes a patch (+ testing + maintenance + ...).

Of course your experience counts, but who do you expect to code the program?

Next best to coding ability is money. If the patch is profitable for the 
company, then maybe they should pay to outsource the programming. Then 
you would have code to post to Trac + you can contribute all the 
domain-specific knowledge you have from management POV to make sure it's 
implementing the right thing.
