What's unclear?  Recommended packages _are_ contributed (and they are in 
the contrib section on CRAN), and we do say

   Bug reports on contributed packages should be sent first to the package
   maintainer, and only submitted to the R-bugs repository by package
   maintainers, mentioning the package in the subject line.

Would you prefer `contributed (including recommended)'?

As Deepayan does not have write access to R-bugs, someone who does has to 
clean up reports such as this.  So we do really only want the package 
maintainers to file reports for the record.
