This patch updates the text from the support <http://winmerge.org/support/> page. It use a mix from manual texts and the old texts:

-------------------------8<-------------------------
The _Open Discussion forum_ is the fastest way to get help. Please be patient, it may take some time for somebody to answer. A other way is a subscription to the _support mailing list_.

If you find a bug, please submit it as a _bug report_. Please attach as much information as you can: at a minimum, the version number of WinMerge that you are using. If you can, also attach a configuration log which, you can display by clicking Help -> Configuration in the WinMerge window. Good information in a bug report makes it more likely that your bug will be fixed quickly.

We prefer that you _register_ with _SourceForge.net_ before posting a bug report (registration is public and free), so that you receive email notifications if we post follow-up questions to your bug. Registration is not currently required for you to post a bug report. However, we generally give less priority to unregistered bug reports, because it has been our experience that unregistered posters often do not return to answer follow-up questions.

Wish list items on the _feature request list_ will also be considered, but we make absolutely no promises.

    Oh, I just submitted a TODO-item:
    #2478067 Web: Support page says registration is not required
    http://winmerge.org/todo/2478067

    I guess it can be handled in this patch... So I think the third paragraph above needs some modifications.
