Re: skip link breaks back button

You know what would be a great service to the community? A set of pages with the basics of:
* How to tell it's a bug (which, for the sake of this discussion, we'll say is "an issue to be brought to the attention of the responsible party").
* How to isolate the bug (browser? OS? AT? Javascript? HTML spec?).
* Where to report each type of bug—for example, is there a specific site to file TalkBack bugs? Or do I use the Android issue queue? And where is the Android issue queue—if that's what it's called.
* Tips for searching issue queues to be sure you have found a new, unreported bug.
If nothing else, a page that just points to each respective page where users can report a bug would be a big help. I have several project teams that would be using it now.
