How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Fix the location of the Patchdownloader.log file

That's 'fix' as in 'nail in the same place'. Who's forever getting frustrated at remembering where patch downloads get logged to depending on which user/process initiates the downloads? Can the Patchdownloader.log file not be always logged to the site server Logs folder? Not fussed if the solution has to create multiple log file, I would just like to know that I can go the the same place directly every time and there it is!

    I find this extremely frustrating myself, would have voted this up if I had any votes left. How hard can it be to put this logfile in the standard log file folder on the server?
