i'm missing the same thing: debian should have a database with error
reports and how to fix them. every big bug should be documented (we had
this bud <description>, and you can solve it this way : <solution>. it's
also fixed in the new release debian <version> and in the package xyz

look at other distributions : they have support databases (www.suse.de,
maybe also www.suse.com and other distributions). the bug archive is ok
for us developers, but after a bug is closed, it wouldn't help. and a
user should not have to read the whole discussion, he only needs the bug
description and the solution to solve it.
