Dang, you are correct.  Maybe it's not a good idea to duplicate information
(lest one of the locations will fall out of sync with the other).

But the bugtracker file makes it sound like you need to be a Gnus user to use
M-x gnus-read-ephemeral-emacs-bug-group, which is a bit misleading.  It also
doesn't mention how to view a bug in its "Quick-start guide".

The attached patch tries to fix the above two issues by adding a new section
"How do I read a bug?" to the "Quick-start guide" with both of these methods
covered.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Stefan Kangas
