Are we, as a development community, really running into problems with how we handle bugs? There are certainly small cleanups possible, such as dropping the 'postponed' and 'later' resolutions that we don't seem to use very much, but the flow seems reasonably efficient to me.
We have over 1,700 open issues - bug reports, feature requests and patches - in our bug tracker. In my humble opinion it's a sure sign for a problem.
