I partly agree, but again, this depends on lot on the project in
question. For example, Boost.Python bugs are typically very
self-contained, and Boost.Python users know the project and don't need
to be routed through some official Boost (meta-)tracker.

Other projects / modules may be less independent, so it might not always
be obvious for users where to report issues.
A toplevel page with some guidance would be very useful in any case, and
perhaps even a "catch all" tracker for users who don't know where else
to report the issue. (Though I figure that to be the exception rather
than the rule.)
