I'm no coder and here is my step by step recipe for iD bug reporting:

Visit https://github.com/ and "Sign up" (the platform is independent 
from OSM and HOT so you'll need to create a new account first). When 
successfully logged in just follow this procedure:

1. on the upper left is a search bar ("Search GitHub"): type 'iD' and 
click "enter" on your keyboard

2. in the list of search results click on "openstreetmap/iD" (should be 
the first item)

3. click on "Issues" (navigation bar on the right)

4. click on "New issue" (green button)

5. choose a good title and write your problem description

6. click on "Submit..."
