How to quit an Android app

IMO, having a *requirement* for a user to create a test stack - EVEN IF 
THE SIMPLE DESCRIPTION IS CLEAR AND UNAMBIGUOUS - is an unacceptable 
bureaucratic nonsense.

I'm all in favour of creating test stacks to demonstrate a problem - 
esp. if the originally failing stack is complex, or if this can save the 
development team significant time. But if it is simply moving the time 
burden from the developers to the users, then it's unreasonable.

I'd be OK with the situation of entering a bug with clear description - 
and giving the developers the option to request a test stack; but to 
impose that as a blanket, requirement before the bug will be properly 
considered is not OK.
