Do you mean you'd like to wade through the installation
reports of every people installing Wine?  How would you tell
which report belongs to whom?  Anyway, your business, but I
think we shouldn't mix those reports with those of the
offical test suites that test writers use for reference.
What default values do you think would serve for this

OTOH if you'd like to see winetest reports from somebody who
complains, the -o option may come to your help, as you could
ask for the log file mailed to you.  But then you could as
well do without winetest, of course.

I suggest you come up with a concrete proposal we can
discuss.  Winetest is free software (and still incomplete),
you can change it or have it changed; I'm willing to help out.
