Description

Patch adding the following text to docs/contributing.txt:

    * **Don't** post to `django-developers`_ to announce that you have logged a
      bug. The core developers and ticket triage team keep a handle on the new
      tickets as they are submitted.

      You only need to start a django-developers discussion if there is some
      sort of design issue to resolve (for example, if you want to fix the bug,
      and want advice on the correct solution to a problem).

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Design decision needed

Hmm... a little bit blunt :) Are we really getting that much traffic in django-dev along these lines? and do we really want to scare off contributors?

It's almost verbatim what was said in this post, and seems to reflect the current orientation of most developers.
