You might want to consider filtering out bugs with sync or merge in
the title. As bugs reported by developers (by way of bug-control
membership) have a higher gravity, syncs are being shown as some of
the "gravest" bugs in the report. Yet, they are not very interesting
from a triaging/bugsquad stand point.
