Why am I not surprised you said that...

Reporters on any knowledge-level need to be able to produce gdb if asked
for without having to read through stacks of man pages or the whole
internet for that matter...

I would "Image" maintainer or triager would be redirecting him to the
corresponding component "how to debug page" from bugzilla or he would be
coming directly from the component page itself.

Ask yourself this would you search for "Bugs_and_feature_requests" or
the "Component" in our wiki when your are going to file a report against
a certain component.

I think that info should reside under <component>#Reporting_Problems not
on the "How to debug component" page.
