Unfortunately I have to disagree with you.

I have come across 3 NFS related PR's so far, I manually patching my 
system with them against STABLE.
Let's see them:

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=147998 - patch provided by 
the reporter, no resolution after 2 years.
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=162009 - patch provided by 
the reporter, no resolution after 9 month
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=164933 - I reported with a 
patch, no resolution after 6 month

Certainly I can report another PR with the problems I spotted and wait 2 
years before I get an answer, but I don't call that problem solving. Or 
can you please explain what do you mean by "proper channel"?

I can understand, that's pretty annoying (from my point SAD) that 
someone is sending problems to the mailing list and gets no hints.

However I think, it's more sad, that the freebsd developer community is 
just ignoring the patches they are sent and doesn't considers quality
