That sounds good, so long as the tags will be used by those in-the-know
to find the bugs afterwards.

That looks sufficient to me :) I hadn't read that wiki page before, I'll
have to add it to my "toolbox".

Okay that's good. I know a lot of the universe discussion happens on IRC
but mailing lists can be quite valuable too. Now that my university
course is keeping me very busy, mailing lists are my main source of
Ubuntu interaction (IRC is firewalled off from campus, and mailing lists
can be read and re-read any time).

Thanks for your help, Daniel
