Comment (by magicroundabout):

 My UX feedback carried over from #1858

 I was at a WordPress Contributor day today. I've contributed before, but
 it's not a frequent occurrence. Consider me a relative newbie.

 On https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ there's a big blue new ticket button.
 I expected to click "Tickets" in the nav and then "New ticket" somewhere.
 It really wasn't clear at all. The meaning of the small icon is not clear
 either. You guys probably know what it does, but a new contributor

 @ocean90's comment about not wanting people to treat Trac as a support
 system is validity. So there's an interesting UX question about how you
 raise the barrier to entry, but without making life unnecessarily hard for
 people who do want to contribute but are inexperienced with Trac.  On
 another day with less time I might have walked away in frustration.

 If you're reviewing the whole nav then I'm happy to be involved. It's
 pretty confusing. Two search options that do different things, paths that
 lead to similar-but-different screens.  If you want a relatively new trac
 user to give feedback, feel free to look me up on Slack.
