I have been wondering how to reduce the number of complaints about
known issues. At the moment that is the Vista problems in 1.4.x. How
about putting a known problems document on the sourceforge download
page. I know it's all there in the FAQ, but it's not always easy to
find your way round the FAQ - there are just to many topics, and
Drupal's search is still broken IIRC.
