Ok. However, I don't see anything on the AppDB forms for entering
HOWTO information for a vendor or application and linking application
notes to the vendor version.
Do you mean these should be in the Application Comments section? If
so, what about having Vendor Comments as well? However, these feel
more like email discussions about applications and the HOWTO notes
could get lost in the noise; in addition to this, the HOWTO may evolve
and thus it would be harder to track down which is the right one.
