The thing to keep in mind is: with the new forum gateway, wine-users
is getting a flood of regular non-geek users - the sort of people who
are not geeks at all, but who are sick of Windows being flaky, so they
try Linux (often Ubuntu) and try Wine for that one Windows program
they're stuck with.

And with Wine 1.0 just around the corner, they're going to appear in a
*FLOOD*. You think wine-users has lots of n00bs now? This is NOTHING
to the flood that's about to show up ...

So yeah, the key thing to keep in mind will be to very clearly steer
them to stuff that answers the n00b questions well!

(And thus keep them out of the developers' hair, except the valiant
n00b-helpers who have been writing decent bug reports from scanty
information in the last few weeks from forum/list posts ...)
