Mail lists

Also I'd like to mention something. Sometimes, a filed bug reports gets
closed right away for various reasons (not a bug, intended behaviour,
duplicate, etc.)

While it might be frustrating for the user who filed the report, it is
important that everybody understand that even in that case, the bug *is*
important, because it's filed, other people can find it, we have a log
of the problem, etc.

Of course, looking for duplicates before filing a bug is also a good
