Would you accept patches to the contrib page that suggested the use
of the existing bugzilla as a resource?  If so, then I'd like to add a table
of contents and re-order things a bit as well.

is going to change that or convince a small team of busy developers to
do your bidding.
We already have the setup bugzilla in operation.
I am responsible for incoming tickets, most of them are spam, and trigger the
developers if there's some update.

It's additional work and in most of the cases not needed, but in some cases it
might be useful.

So would you prefer that I NOT suggest a patch to <>.
to draw people's attention to the existing Bugzilla?

The bugzilla is just an internal tool for the developers. We don't need additional attention there. The proper proposal and discussion is via the cygwin-apps@ list.

Anecdote: perl5 and postgresql development still works only via discussion and patches to the mailinglists. There's no tracker
at all.

Else, if you'd like a patch, to whom should I send it?

As explained in the contrib guideline. To cygwin-apps@ of course.

The current -p patch is at

The name selection filter suggestion not yet.

And it would be good if the setup.exe suggestion/reports would be posted to
the right list, which is cygwin-apps, not cygwin!

I could try and work something in to a patch for contrib.html about that, if it is desired.

I rather tend to ignore it here.
