It sounds like promoting this in http://www.bioconductor.org/developers/package-guidelines/ might be the path of least pain/most gain.

The BioConductor project _could_ at some point as a service choose to host a single bug/issue tracking system which individual package developers could choose to opt in, or not, at their discretion, on a package by package basis.
