Re: How do we encourage bug reports?

I think it is not the job of the person reporting a bug to worry about
duplicate reports. Especially not if the person is an end-user and not
a Debian developer.

	1. User discovers a bug.
	2. User reports a bug.

Eager people will check the bug system before they repeat a bug,
if only because they might find a solution quicker, if the bug
has already been reported. However, in no way should we indicate
that bug reporters are expected to do this.
