11 Folks, I'd like to direct your attention to bug #269067. In this case,
12 had the bugwrangler(yngwin) asked for paludis --info the bug could have
13 been RESO INVALID without it getting to me. I wouldn't have wasted ~30

16 So yes, paludis --info can come in handy, and I found it useful in this
17 case.
