+    <p>Subversion gets a pretty steady stream of bug reports.  While
+       we do our best to validate each report as comes in, we can't
+       possibly prevent every instance of duplicated bug reports, bugs
+       that have been fixed without anybody noticing, and so on in our
+       <a href="/issue-tracker.html">issue tracker</a>.  One way you
+       can help us is by cruising through some of
+       our <a href=";issue_status=UNCONFIRMED&amp;issue_status=NEW&amp;issue_status=STARTED&amp;issue_status=REOPENED&amp;target_milestone=---"
+       >issues in need of triage</a>, reading the bug reports, and
+       attempting to verify that the bug still exists in Subversion.
+       If you discover some additional information along the way that
+       you think will be useful to the developers, annotate the issue
+       and share what you've learned.</p>
