That's certainly good advice, even if it supports gatekeeping and
stability more than efficiency and speed.  I'm not sure where you'd like
to drop said advice where QA-type people will find it.  The ideal
solution would be a link to [[How To Contribute to the Release Notes]],
but that page is really confusing.  It does, on the other hand, link to
a handy pre-filled Bugzilla form for Release Notes updates:

I added links to: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F13_bugs 
If that looks good, feel free to copy to the F12 version which is
currently live.
