It is well-meant, but I actually doubt the usefulness right now. For
one, we don't know for which hardware that stuff is generated. It may be
good to keep the stuff around for later reference, but I don't know
anybody who would have time to analyze these dumps in the next 3 months.

We should have a page called "Want to help?" in the wiki and post easy
instructions there. Installing subversion is not what I consider to be
easy. And we need to explain what our tools do so people can decide on
their own whether they want to run the tools.
