The wiki would be a good place for this, but there isn't a list of
common errors that I know of.

Error 1603 is a generic error.

Bugzilla is not a place for discussing since it would be closed with some mentions like "Bugzilla is not a self-help support" - the difference why people post their problems in forums, they want to know if others experienced the same.

AppDB serves a lot of this purpose, but not across applications.
