I don't know how to program production applications or scripts yet.  I
do not wish to go through the Google paywall.

It does work.  But when I open an issue to see its contents, it drives
me to the non-functional Javascript in Salsa.

Will do that.  I see that the DBTS has only one year old issues.  But I
guess that my reports will be accepted via email.
