    No, it just shows that bugzilla doesn't matter for most of the kernel.

    Don't say that "bugzilla tells how bad we are at handling bugs". It tells
    how bad *bugzilla* is for handling bugs, nothing more.

    Trying to play politics by pointing to bugzilla is pointless. Bugzilla is
    used for a few subsystems (ACPI seems to use it actively, for example),
    but I doubt most developers use it.

    Would be be good to have a better bug-tracking setup? Yes. But I think it
    takes man-power, and it would take something *fundamentally* better than

    Maybe the new "" thing will
    evolve to something worth tracking. Right now, bugzilla isn't it (although
    it can be a useful tracking place for individual bugs, *once* you've found
    and gotten the right developer involved - but that's a huge step that
    bugzilla generally does *not* do for us).
