I isn't too bad if you actually search, but I agree that the UI isn't
the greatest for this software when you compare it to some of the more
automatic things out there like Ubuntu's bug reporting software that
automatically searches a particular package for similar sounding bugs
for you and presents a list etc.

Actually, I don't think it is integrated into the main blender site in
any way other than it shares the same skin/theme.
