    That depends on your point of view. One of the biggest problems
    bugme has is that not enough of the kernel developers are on it.

    I originally signed up to bugme to be able to use it as a service
    for those folk who want to report a bug against the new code I look
    after, but (for me) it's turned into a bug reporting system for all
    serial drivers and seemingly its my responsibility to fix them all
    (because I can't assign them to anyone else - I don't even know
    who else is signed up to bugme to be able to give them away.)

    And as a direct result of this, I tend to end up rejecting bug
    reports for random serial drivers that I have absolutely no idea
    about just because I can't shift them. I don't like doing this
    because it means as a whole we're losing valuable bug reports,
    but if I don't take this drastic action, I'd end up with pages
    of unprocessable bugs.

    So, before trying to get the "underworked" bug system used more,
    please try to get more developers signed up to it so that we have
    the necessary folk behind the bug system to handle the increased
    work load.
