Instead of sending them directly to us, we encourage everyone to file
bugreports in our bug database at . You
can attaching the files that are not opened properly to the bugreports.

This will A) prevent the report from being forgotten B) allows every
(potential) developer to look at the files, and possible fix the import.

If the files are confidential, then you might consider it to send them
directly to a developer whom you trust. Bugzilla is the normal route
though :-)
