For the most part JSBin is pretty good. If you find any issues with
the main UI, file an issue in Github for it.

FWIW, Remy is super cool about merging PRs. I fixed a few
accessibility issues a while back and he was quick to merge them.

There are 3 open issues relating to accessibility right now that could
use some love.

As Brandon says, the text editor needs help - they're using
CodeMirror. CodeMirror also has an open repo as well. Definitely log
bugs: https://github.com/codemirror/CodeMirror
