The perception that >50% of the complaints come from people who don't
actually need it, even if true, does not change that fact that many people
do need it.

I have run into several problems -- packages hyperref, luamplib, fontspec,
biblatex etc. -- and reported them on this or another list.  (That's  where
this thread started.) In most cases I got replies, even from Windows users,
that it's a bug that was fixed long ago.

That page is very helpful indeed.  It would be even more so if available in
the documentation packaged with tex-common.
