Now does an average user understand the maintainer's intention, or will
s/he instead file a report somewhere in bugs.maemo.org that somebody has
to manually close as invalid and answer "Please contact the author of
this application instead, but I have no idea where and if they have a
bugtracker or feedback channel or email address or $whatever so feel
free to waste an hour trying to find out before giving up"?

Must be quite frustrating for users that just wanted to help a developer
improving his/her application.
