People are highly suspicious of statistics with a clear meaning. I think it
has something to do with penis length measurements (on which count *I* have
no cause for fear, let me assure you -- indeed I break most measuring tapes
whenever a squirrel runs by outside my window).
Is there a simple way to get a count of bugs fixed on the release22-maint
branch over a given time span? I don't think so, but there *could* be if
people added an entry to the appropriate NEWS file(s) per bug fixed. Or
maybe that's just dreamming up a way to discourage bug fixes <wink>.
