The best is to fill a PR, because is most likely won't be lost in the
noise or forgotten and it will keep the history of an entire problem.
But there are other means, for example, the problem David was referred
to was fixed as the result of the IRC chat with Maxim, as said in the
IRC/Jabber/e-mail is likely the best for the simple problems, but if
they aren't addressed quickly -- open the PR. The definition of
"quickly" is rather vague and left for the originator's discretion ;))

It obviously depends on a PR's content, the people who're on the
loop, the time period (ports freeze, etc) and so on. I had seen PRs
that were closed in tenth of minutes and I had seen PRs that stay
in the queue for years. Everything depends on the specifics of the
problem and the people who are involved in the loop.
