    I agree with you David. I had to report a bug to the NTP mailing list. I
    got it back right in my face because I had not subscribed. Then I went
    to thei bugzilla interface... What a counter-intuitive tool ! I was about
    to give up at least 3 times. It took me at least 15 minutes to find how I
    could report my bug and provide the patch in a usable form. I'm really
    sure that a lot of bug reports get lost because of this !

    I'd rather get a few spams on LKML than lose bug reports because of
    discouraged users !
