Final Image Testing for Utopic!

When you find bugs that are already reported, that's good data for the bug.
I would report the result on the isotracker and then provide a link to the
pre-existing bug report. On the bug report, I would click the 'also affects
me' button at the top of the page. This raises the bug heat and is the best
way to say 'this affects me too'.

If you believe you have valuable info to add, please do comment on the bug
report. Just avoid adding the "me too"! type comments. This means if the
only comments you can add to the bug are that your machine is also broke,
even if you provide the machine details, you don't need to leave the
comment. By clicking 'affects me' you've already sent this data point. On
the other hand if you can provide more details about the bug, or the bug
behaves uniquely for you, etc, please do comment. *Sometimes* this might
mean you would leave a comment saying it affects brand X of hardware as
well as what's listed in the bug, but only when the bug itself mentions
these specific limitations.

Bugsquaders, please feel free to correct if I mispoke on anything above :-)
I trust this helps and makes sense. Thanks so much for testing!
