I strongly disagree on this point: Bugs must _not_ be documented; they
must be _fixed_! (We are Debian, not Microsoft ;).
Also, you install once (usually takes no more than 1 hour) and you keep
your running system for a much longer while.
Not that bugs in the install shouldn't be fixed (fixed, not documented! ;)
of course...
