Hi, Can we possibly include the concept of "helping to file bug reports" here?
For example, I've got an issue (which hasn't annoyed me just quite enough yet to put effort in) where on bootup after xdm init script starts it takes ~2 minutes before slim login is displayed. But I don't know enough of the workings of that to even understand if this is an Xorg or slim (or dbus) bug ... Guessing #gentoo may also be of help in regards to the above, so this is really just a suggestion. Yes, it will generate more bugs, but hopefully the concept will allow for creating targeted bugs rather than overly generic difficult to trouble-shoot bugs.
