open a terminal and run

  grep EE /var/log/Xorg*log*

Assuming you get a short output, copy and paste the command and it's
output to an email. If possible copy and send without wrapping
the plain text lines. If the output is long, post it to e.g.
https://pastebin.com/ and send the link to the mailing list.

If you don't know how to avoid line wrapping for Thunderbird, which
seems to be your mail client, then run

  grep EE /var/log/Xorg*log* > /tmp/xorglog.txt

and attach the file /tmp/xorglog.txt to an email.
