please note that the bounty we all accepted is regarding the fact
distros are 100% free. But I do agree with the other suggestion of
listing known bugs, just like should be done in any software.

people here before saying that they should solicit us to work more,
faster and better, should also consider we do all this for free as
voluntary work that (IMHO) should to be helped and facilitated by
organisations like the FSF. We are working very hard and with a
specialisation that often not even the FSF is able to provide, all for
free and without claiming any of the amounts of donations that the FSF
already receives to.. do what? tell us we are not working enough for
free? then let the labor issues kick in...

honestly yours, running a non-profit foundation in Europe since more
than 15 years here, maintaining dyne:bolic free of charge for
everyone, planning with colleagues even new 100% free distros, and we
are affiliated to FSFE. So I'd ask here a bit of support please and at
least an attitude that considers we are all on the same ship, not
ought to throw each other overboard when we don't row at the same
rythm (and with very different sustainability plans...)
