standardized tooling to report bugs/issues/etc.

Every time I have some software issue I reach out to forums in hoping to resolve them.

However, I also need to give enough information about the current state of the system. Something I haven't seen a best practices/guide how to do.

Is there some software tool I can use as a standard for reporting issues and requesting assistance in addition to system description?

Something which will bundle system information (i.e. inxi --full), with a list of installed packages (i.e. pacman -Q) and various systemd journalctrl logs, logs, and various common points of interest. There's nothing worse when you create an issue and the brave helpful soul wants to help you, yet they cannot do much without extra information.

There's another potential benefit to this standardization:
* creating tooling working on those recommending common resolution paths? Something like detecting high info less noise diagnostics about what's currently working and what's potentially broken in your system.

What do you think about it?
