Bug#856691: Minor tweaks to webpages about the bug-tracking system

Package:  www.debian.org
Severity:  minor

Can the following 3 things be clarified on the website: 

 * The item in the e-mails below about X-Debbugs-No-Ack & other pseudo-headers. 

 * On https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer there is a Table-of-Contents entry
that says:  "Recording that you have passed on a bug report".  This can sound
like "pass" in the Python programming language, i.e., "ignored."  Maybe this
can be reworded like "Recording that you have notified someone else of a bug

 * On https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting , about 2/3 of the way down, it
says "If wish to report" instead of "If you wish to report".

The psuedoheader parsing code is a bit different from the header parsing
code, and requires that there is a content after the colon. [This
limitation doesn't exist for the headers, though.]

So... the content doesn't matter, but pseudoheaders need content.
