For example, Matt helped me with an issue yesterday, and afterwards

Having an example with some logs and then even stream of
consciousness notes like “I noticed the out of memory error, and
then I found the first instance of that and looked at the oom-killer
report in syslog to see which process was killed and it was X which
might mean Y” would help.
I'd _love_ to be more capable at gate debugging.
That said, it does get easier just by doing it. The first many times
is like beating my head against the wall, especially the constant
sense of where am I and where do I need to go.
