I believe that produces more work than actually help.  There are
growing differences that you cannot just require people to diff
trees.  If you want to make the Axiom Wiki The Issue Tracker for
FriCAS, that is fine.  But, don't tell us to go and diff it against
other trees.

It is far more accurate than saying fix proposed -- because I don't
think it makes sense for me to tell people to go and diff their trees
against OpenAxiom to extrapolate a `proposed fix' -- I'm not saying
they should not be doing it, but I don't think that qualifies as `fix

But, you're already actively doing it.
