We don't have a "bug submission page": users are advised to mail problem
reports to this bug list.  I have no idea what page you used.

That's because the long note names have been changed.  If you had used
convert-ly for converting the syntax, you'd hopefully not have seen a
problem ("hopefully" since the conversion rule currently is less than
perfect and will likely be improved in 2.19.21, probably including the
results of issue 4372

LilyPond's Changes section

Actually, it does not state anything at all.  Uh, that would likely be
worth a few words.  The issue introducing this change had been
issue 4209
<URL:https://code.google.com/p/lilypond/issues/detail?id=4209> and the
changes had been present since version 2.19.16.

The respective discussion (namely none at all) is evenly distributed

There might have been some ongoing discussion on the developer list
before that, so you might want to look in the Nov/Dec 2014 time frame in
the archives.
