I've looked at that list quite a few times, and each time I don't find
too many changes. How exactly do you want normal triagers like me, who
can't really fix bugs, but can certainly confirm/mark-dupes etc to
make that list better?

Could I (or someone else)
1) Add links to the appropriate launchpad package bugs URL for each
package, linking the text with the name of the package to the URL?

2) Add comments detailing the state of bugs with counts for the
different kinds of bugs?

What use is the "Last worked through" column for normal triagers like
me? If I go through the bugs in a package once, that surely doesn't
count as a "work through", or does it?

Please let me know if I can be of help with the above, or any other
specific tasks to make that page better. What holds me back from
editing that page is the "Last worked through" column - which seems to
be more for developers, who know about the package in question, and
have looked at all the bugs, fixing what they can, and forwarding what
needs to be forwarded upstream etc. I come in at a much lower
skill-range ;)
