A draft implementation of a bug report front end for libreoffice was assembled behind a reverse proxy pretending that http://freedesktop.dachary.org/ is http://bugs.freedesktop.org/. For the Writer and BASIC components a subcomponent can be selected. The URLs of the existing bug reportings is appended to the page. When the form is submit the user is redirected to bugs.freedesktop.org with the proper fields set.
A wiki page linked from the FAQ explains how to report a bug in the bug report web site.
Another wiki page linked from the FAQ helps understand how to fill the various fields.
The subcomponent is not supported by bugzilla. It is a string that has to be included in the summary of the bug report.
A fake bug report was filled to observe the HTTP request sent to the server:

Rainer Bielefeld created wiki pages explaining the rationale in the context of libreoffice Q&A. It links to pages explaining what the Bug Submission Assistant is and what needs to be done.
It is not possible to use theJS implementation of the Bugzilla REST API on version 3.0.3 because it’s not implemented before 3.2 ( the latest stable 3.4.x, 3.6.x or 4.0.x point release of Bugzilla (many features will not work on 3.2); )
