Tools for issue queue ninjas
I'm going to tell you a secret: I'm a core issue queue ninja.
I appeared from nowhere last summer and started raising hell--quietly and politely. I patch and test and triage, and mentor and review. You look for the new critical, but I have already triaged it.

Ninjas need tools
The standard ninja is swift and efficient with bare hands and feet, but so much more deadly when equipped with proper shuriken or swords.

- Add "issue summary template" button
- Improve issue form to encourage posting steps to reproduce
(The last two ideas have only been recently submitted, and so need your help to make them more visible. Vote on other ideas too!)
