2. Discuss the problem on the forum first!
Maybe we could add an why? link?
I don't know the words, but, "help us triage your bug so it gets fixed. Developer time is precious" etc.?

I think this is also a valid request.
Do we have consensus on what I'm proposing in https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 36#p259976

I would tweak #2 as suggested by chrisb. Even if the user is sure, we want to test on other OS/Distros to refine the bug report.
