Should I update this section?

http://xfs.org/index.php/XFS_FAQ#Q:_What_information_should_I_include_when_reporting_a_problem.3F

We should probably just send that link to people so you don't have to 
write long texts all the time.

Maybe above section should be updated to:

Things to include are what version of XFS you are using and version of 
the kernel. If you have problems with userland packages please report 
the version of the package you are using.

If the problem relates to a particular filesystem, the output from the 
xfs_info(8) command and any mount(8) options in use will also be useful 
to the developers.

If you experience an oops, please run it through ksymoops so that it can 
be interpreted. Also describe what you were doing, if you can repeat it, 
and describe you kernel, storage, test case, if there was a hardware 
problem before, etc.

If you have a filesystem that cannot be repaired, make sure you have 
xfsprogs 3.1.x or later and run xfs_metadump(8) to capture the metadata 
(which obfuscates filenames and attributes to protect your privacy) and 
make the dump available for someone to analyse.
