It would be quite helpful if you were to let us know which documentation
you were reading and what parts were not informative enough.  This will
allow us to better improve the documentation for everyone.

No, that is entirely optional.  Use whatever version you have available,
well provided it isn't Jaunty, is the right one to use.  Its still
possible to improve the bug report but clarifying the bug title,
improving the steps to recreate the bug or a variety of other things.
