I have an idea that can reduce a lot of reports being sent to the wrong
place (usually https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website
!): add a "Report a Problem for this Layer" button. Scenario:

User spots problem when browsing one of the four Map Layers.

User wishes to do his best to report the problem to the responsible
parties in the most direct way possible.

User sees a "Tiles courtesy of" link in the lower right corner. (Some
layers don't even have that, but just a "Donate" button.)

Unfortunately this link is not a direct link to the bug tracker URL for
that layer. Nor can the user usually find the bug tracker for that layer
very easily from that link. He ends up wrongly reporting it as a general
website issue.

So just to the right of the "Tiles courtesy of/Donate" link/button,
please add an additional "Report a Problem for this Layer" button. You
could have it render as just a "!" with "Report a Problem for this
Layer" as its mouseover.

So what would it link to? Well for instance for the Humanitarian Layer,
it could link to https://github.com/hotosm/HDM-CartoCSS/issue .

That would save the user a day of digging, and the
https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website team one less bug
to close.
