Actually instruction how to file bugs upstream should be under 
components page or components group page on the wiki.

So for an example if working with Gnome upstream bugzilla the 
instruction to do so should be on a page under

Those instructions need to be on a step by step bases usage along with 
explanation of the different bug workflow upstream has in their bugzilla 
vs ours and also explanation on what's the difference between upstream 
bugzillas vs to avoid confusing reporters using our 
bugzilla and theirs, that is if upstream is using mozilla bugzilla to 
track their bug reports ( which is far from being the generic case ). To 
give you an example bugs status on bugs filed against components in Red 
Hat and bug status on bugs filed against component in Fedora do not have 
the same meaning behind them and are treated differently even thou they 
are using the same bugzilla instance together.
