SF does provide reports.  E.g. go to

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/reporting/?atid=105470&what=aging&span=52&period=week&group_id=5470

and see that recently we've gotten much better at closing bugs
quickly, and that the last 6 weeks or so we've started to reduce the
number of open bugs (after letting them slip since Dec 2001 :-).
