Indeed. The issue of kernel bug tracking gets pondered and discussed
every few months it seems (not without need, mind you).
To tie this back into the original whine from RobL, what we do NOT need
is a patch secretary. What we do need, desperately, is
(a) a bug-tracking system, and
(b) at least one sharp person, with bunches of help from kernel
developers and users alike, to close fixed bugs, ping users, clear out
garbage so that the bug database has a very high signal-to-noise ratio.
Good kernel bug tracking can be done, but it requires human maintenance,
by someone or someones with a brain. It cannot be done without plenty
of automation, though, as tytso (god bless him for trying!) showed...
Such would be a significant boon to -all- Linux users.
