I know this has been requested by a lot of people, so I am happy to report that you will now receive a confirmation through e-mail when reporting bugs. This should make it easier for you to keep track of reported bugs, and look them up later if you need to add information or refer to the bug report somewhere. …
I have pasted the e-mail below, so that you won't have to submit fake bug reports to see what it looks like 🙂 All specific details have been replaced by text in angle brackets ("<Text>"). The e-mail is sent from <Bug_ID>@bugs.opera.com to make it easy to reply in order to add another comment to your bug report.
If you report Opera Mini bugs, the e-mail will refer to "Opera Mini" instead of just "Opera".
Here is the e-mail (sorry for the horizontal scrolling, but you can press Ctrl+F11 to enable Fit to Width in Opera):
