No criticism intended of the folk who sacrifice their free time
dealing with other people's bug reports & diffs, it's very kind of
them to do it :-) I guess lots of us paused a moment to admire the
courage of the last bug-a-thon assault team (a weekend about a month
back I recall).
I just suggest the oldest bug reports (most boring/ intractable/
tedious, unappealing to unpaid volunteers) could be worked by
paid/sponsored help, if there's every any money or sponsored hours
available, leaving the newer bugs to interest the unpaid volunteers.
