#2132: Change “Browse in Trac” link to something more meaningful

 Priority:  normal            |  Milestone:
Component:  Plugin Directory  |   Keywords:
 Please split the “Browse in Track” link on individual plugin pages into
 two links to facilitate better use of the Track system and encourage more

 <a href="https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/query?status=!closed&component
 =PLUGIN-SLUG">List all known issues</a>

 <a href="https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/newticket?component=PLUGIN-
 SLUG">Report a new issue or submit patches</a>

 I strongly believe that having these two links instead of the rather
 cryptic “Browse in Trac” link will increase engagement. The suggested
 links don’t require prior knowledge of what Trac is and makes Trac easier
 to use for new users by bypassing the complications of locating the
 correct component (and knowing what component to choose from a list of
 thousands of plugins). Automatically assigning/notifying the plugin author
 is of course required for this to work properly.

 Only 1906 out of the 47 161 total plugins (4,04 %) have components in
 Trac. Why? Either get rid of Trac entirely to not confuse people, or fix
 it so it works for all plugins.
