Well as an experienced developer, I want as much info as possible (including everything with debug=yes), but then I'd probably compile everything myself anyway.

I was thinking more of perhaps the developer who is just starting out. Who expects GNUstep to be bug free ( ;-) ) or doesn't know about the debugging option or perhaps just starts out with your SPM to see what's up. Eventually I'd like to include some kind of automatic backtrace when an exception or crash occurs. It would generate a file that you could mail to the bug-gnustep list that would allow us to figure out the problem. I think some kind of package like that exists for OpenStep or NeXTStep but I forgot the name.
