Sometimes I find that the new/no-package bugs are not so easy to isolate 
to a package, so when I really want to make progress and try to get that 
number down below 97700, I take a slightly different approach. Maybe you 
can consider this option too: I pick packages that I am familiar with, 
use a lot, or have an interest in. I try to clean up the new bug list 
first, confirming, duping, and triaging if possible. After a few passes 
through the list you can usually make a dent in dupes and unconfirmed 
bugs. I'll then spend some time on older bugs, seeing if they've been 
fixed upstream or need more info.

Good luck!
