I think we'd want to enhance this form. IIRC the 'Details' view is
small and obtuse and it's not easy to review. I'm not saying we
_should_ create these features, but here are a few I brainstormed:

- A much bigger, more clear Details window with:
- The ability to include to exclude individual sections of the report
(for example, Hardware information would not be included by default,
but maybe we give the user the ability to include it)
- The ability to perform text searches for keywords of their choosing
to spot-check if they are present in the report

Just ideas.

Let's try and avoid GDocs if you don't mind :)

I put your document here:
(I don't know if you can create storm documents, but you could use
pad.riseup.net ) and put comments on it.

I don't know the answer to this, but hopefully Damian does?
