I understand what you mean. It is not easy to define what should be in
and what should be out. However there are issues that many people will
encounter rather sooner that later, e.g., the two that I mentioned. A
bug in an obscure hardware driver wouldn't qualify for example.

I don't know what you mean by "denormalization", but an issue report
would be like a summary for one or several bugs/problems present in
bugzilla.

What I call for is better "information politics". For example I couldn't
find any links for the mentioned faq locations on fedora.redhat.com. And
why should there be fedora.redhat.com, fedoranews.org, fedorafaq.org,
fedoraforum.org instead of one. It is of course desirable to have many
supporting websites, but as a point of depart fedora.redhat.com is most
important.
