The bug report is derived from the bug and patch email lists, so that 
information isn't available without scraping it off SF.

However, the SF trackers can be set to query for Unassigned / Open.
It looks like about 2/3 of the open bugs and 3/4 of the open patches
are unassigned.  I often unassign IDLE bugs that I'm not planning to
fix right now, hoping that may encourage someone to step forward by
removing the illusion that something is happening.  Conversely, if I
make progress on an unassigned bug/patch, I'll assign it to myself as
an indication that it's being worked on, avoiding duplication of

I track IDLE bugs via the IDLE category.  That's very useful, maybe we
need more categories?
