Hi. I think this is a wonderful idea and would be willing to volunteer
time to help out. Do you know of something like this that exists
already for any other software product? If anyone else thinks this
would be of help please let your comments be known so the level of
interest could be gauged. I too, agree that Wolfram should already
have something like this, and would love to be able to look somewhere
and see if the bug/problem I am experiencing has already been reported
rather than waste time reporting something already known. Where would
be a good place to locate something like this? GREAT IDEA!!!!
