Why did that big chunk of MS's support database text got into our  
codebase? Even not edited, so that I can read up about "tax form 1040  
would not print correctly" in ReactOS Source code? What is the use  
from it?

If you wanted SO MUCH, you could at least edit it, or ask someone to  
edit it for you (we have quite a few people in our team). But then, I  
could insert half of WDK docs into the kernel source code and drivers  
source code (which in fact would violate copyrights, since it would  
not even be fair use).

Providing URL is quite enough, though, if I don't mistake (I'm not up  
to date with their position), Wine is already removing URLs from  
source code because they should be kept somewhere else. Source code  
is source code, not a collector to store everything. There is no  
point in sticking various garbage into reactos source code with a  
note "so it doesn't get lost", we've come over that point quite a few  
years ago.

With the best regards,
Aleksey Bragin.

Lots of text here
