Actually bug report triage is very good now. We have a *few* committed 
volunteers who do it (a relatively recent development - in particular 
Taggnostr, flox, Haypo, Brian Curtin, David R. Murray and Giampaolo 
Rodola - sorry for the IRC handles). They ensure new bug reports are 
closed promptly if possible or assigned to the correct person. I don't 
recall us ever being in better shape from this perspective.
