Hi all,

A couple of days ago I filed this (fairly detailed bug):

About opengl rendering problems with a certain app on an other wise perfectly 
fine working opengl setup, and explaining that downgrading mesa-libGL and not 
making any other changes fixes this. Notice the and not making any other 
changes. Iow this is in no way a configuration problem.

So I got his canned response:
"Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this 

Thanks in advance."

Which is not the first time, and which just plain sucks! This looks as if it 
was added without even taken a look at the bug, as the requested info ranges 
from little relevant to compeltely unrelevant. This does not motivate me (at 
all) to take the time to fill proper detailed bug reports!

So can we please stop with this kind of canned responses, I understand they can 
be usefull but before adding them atleast read the bug and consider if they are 

Thanks & Regards,
