Presently, the ISSUE_TEMPLATE asks the user to provide his local environment information while submitting bug reports. IMO it would be good to have a dedicated flag, babel --info which serves the purpose.

Hey @jamesgeorge007! We really appreciate you taking the time to report an issue. The collaborators on this project attempt to help as many people as possible, but we're a limited number of volunteers, so it's possible this won't be addressed swiftly.

If you need any help, or just have general Babel or JavaScript questions, we have a vibrant Slack community that typically always has someone willing to help. You can sign-up here for an invite.

I think we don't have to add a flag to babel cli since there are many issues related to integrations with other devtools. e.g. Webpack, ESLint. In these cases our users are not supposed to install @babel/cli.

Alternatively we can provide some diagnostic scripts to report babel configuration, os version, node version, package.json, etc. And the user is expected to copy and paste the results instead of manually report on the issue template.
