This is news to me; I have developed for a number of open source projects
and I have _never_ looked at any of the bugs databases. Basically,
they contain no useful information to me. The only time I look in the
repository is to make sure that the code hasn't changes too much since
the last release so my patches aren't out of date.
As someone who tracks a number of open-source packages, I never look
in their bugs databases or repository. I do look at the ChangeLog or
equivalant to see what's new since the last release.
