To find the mailing list post that I originally sent to this thread I
just threw the error message into Google; automated analysis (Google)
is better than human annotation (Yahoo). So my suggestion is to do the
"link common errors to common solutions" automatically. This could be
as simple as setting up a search engine that indexes the docs and
mailing list (see Apache Solr; this is a back burner project for me).
There is then an infinite amount of effort one can expend making this
better along a number of axes. E.g. better text/link analysis
algorithms, better presentation of information, better analysis of
user behaviour.
