Is Canonical against Kubuntu (2): the bug tracking disaster

the point is not that I find people bad here,
I like kubuntu and I dream of a day where
I can use kubuntu only, and
even install it on pc's of other members of my family
which are non tech people.
The point was:
1. If I file a bug report I try to do best, but perhaps
its a stupid one or is missing information (he he, the bug in the bug)
2. If something is missing I am ready to provide information
if its not too complicated (I am *not* a Linux guru) and as
long as the feedback doesnt come 5 months later.
3. If the feedback comes 5 months later
my thought is (probably other peoples too):
- If I do the work needed to provide the information
- and then I send the information
- and then I have to wait 5 months again
Then I conclude its best to simply wait for the next release because:
- there will be one bug report less in launchpad
- less people will have to read it and spend time on it
- I will spend less time myself on it
We all can use our time for "sensful" things.
And again, even if I am critical its because things
can only be improved if you are a little bit critical.
