I was going to do something like that for github issues since I am
already using github authentication. I think that doing this for
sourceforge issue tracker is better since it the one you actually use.
I however cannot use sourceforge authentication because it doesn't
provide an api to get user info so I will have to both have github and
sourceforge connection

the problem with automatic submission is spam. I think that alot of
error reports that are very similar but not identical would be
submitted if automatic submission is followed. due to the different
ways browsers send their stacktraces and handle errors in general some
reports with the same problem appear to be different thus submitted
individually. I think that it should be done manually when a member
requests it.

also should the bug submission in sourceforge come from the account of
the user who submitted it (requiring a sourceforge connection) or from
a separate account for the error reporting system which would render
the sourceforge connection no longer required.
