Permit editing of bug supervisor and security contact from bug target overview page

Bug Description

The right hand column of the bug target overview page parallels that of the bugs view, but while in the bugs view there are links to editing the bug supervisor and security contact, the overview page doesn't have them. That's very confusing for users.

In the short run it may make sense to add the links. In the long run I think the solution to this confusion is to (a) not mention the bug supervisor and security contact on a project's Overview page at all (because they're Bugs-specific), and (b) not have an Overview-like table on a project's Bugs page at all. That space on the Bugs page could show so much more interesting information.

We now has a link to configure bug tracking on the over view page. I have a branch that adds the bug role fields. We will close this bug when the user can set the bug supervisor and security contact from the new form.
