We arent talking about getting recording user experiences in general. We
are talking about filing bugs and if users are unwilling to report those
bugs into a bug tracking system meant for that purpose, then they are
unlikely to reach the relevant developers. Using bug tracking systems to
record and track bugs isnt specific to Fedora and is a proven
methodology that works throughout all the mature software projects.

If they arent bugs, then thats a unrelated discussion. You can start a
new thread on TCO claims and I would promptly opt out of that ;-).
