Yeah. But I'd rather not scare them with bugzilla, so how about this:
4. For each app you test, add a test report into Wine's AppDB.
Since you're only testing apps that were rated as platinum,
it should work perfectly, even for people who don't know a
commandline from a kumquat.
If it doesn't work perfectly from start to finish, rate it no higher
than gold. Now, if this was just a misrated application, you're
done. But if you can verify that it actually worked great in an
earlier version of wine, you've found a regression! In that
case, please post a message whose subject starts with 'regression:'
in the wine forum (or the wine-users mailing list), or file a bug
Now, that text is too long, but you get the idea. How's it sound now?
