    Nor should they.

    I screen all bugzilla reports. 100% of them.

    - I'll try to establish whether it is a regression

    - I'll solicit any extra information which I believe the reveloper will need

    If so, MANITAINERS claims that it is subscribers-only. That would cause
    some bug reporters to give up and go away.
