Yeah, that's bad, but so is this AppDB page:

People seem to think that the AppDB comment sections are a good place
to post logs.  It made the page really long.  So I put this as the
first thing in the howto:

"Reporting Problems

If you encounter a problem, send your report to Wine-Users Mailing
List or WineHQ Bugzilla. These places are much faster for getting
help, and bugzilla is better for posting logs."

And it mostly seemed to work.  And there are alot more new bug links
now.  But then they added the "testing" section and people use that
too to report their problems and for pasting logs.  I wish they would
be brief in those and link to bug #'s instead.

And true it is the same that the logs aren't good in the bugzilla
comments either.  They should upload them seperate.  I guess there are
a lot of new people that haven't dealt with this system.  The new note
should help.

One of these days I'd really like to clean up the old comments on the
AppDB page, but I don't want to scare anyone with mass deletions.  It
takes a long time to load on dialup.
