Yes M-x report-emacs-bug is the right way to go.  We tipically add
[feature/native-comp] in the subject to recognize these, Ex:

No unfortunatelly there's no TODO.  On my side I'm going to push a
branch reworking the eln placement and compilation trigger mechanism.
This is indirectly open the door for solving once for all the primitive
functions advice issue (probably the cause of some bug still around).

Other than that I've a nuimber of ideas on the performance subject but I
believe the priority should definitely go on tackling and cleaning the
open bugs.

An help in that area can come on trying to reproduce and reduce
analysing reported bug.  Often a generic symptom is reported but
investigation is required to find what is the original discrepancy with
the vanilla implementation.  This bug is good example of that:


That said any input or suggestion based on the user experience or
improvements (including documentation patches) is very welcome.
