Are we trying to package software or testing how motivated our users are?
Why make things harder *intentionally*?

As a small-time maintainer I love that it's easy to tell me when my packages 
have problems. Reporting a problem is not this bizarre test of motivation: "he 
is not motivated enough so I don't want his comments", it's just everyday 

And yes, deleting comments is useful because after the problem is fixed 
it'just takes space.

A *very* simple bug tracker may do, too.
