I don't know if it is the case, but i maintain the redmine AUR package and
for this kind of "announcement" i use the wiki, specifically the
troubleshooting section. There i list any kind if difficult the user can
have or myself have passed through.

i tried to maintain the wiki uptodate and announced it at the comments for
make it clear that the wiki should be the first stop for search. ;)

It is a good policy?
