I understand your frustration  -- I too have reported bugs that have not
seen a resolution. It's bound to happen, on a distribution where the
 users far outnumber the developers. There's a finite number of
developers and they are doing the best that they can. You seem to be
implying that all the developers are just sitting around, slacking off,
and doing nothing, which is simply inaccurate.

Also, having programming or computer science knowledge is not a
requirement for helping out with the bug tracker scene. Why not try to
triage some bugs? I'm sure you've been using Ubuntu long enough to have
an understanding of what is a valid bug, and what is user error or a
duplicate of some other bug. Performing these elementary triaging tasks
frees up time that more programming-oriented developers would be
spending doing this, not to mention it makes the entire bugtracker
cleaner, thus developers can easily see bugs that are valid and can be
fixed.

If you have any other constructive solutions or suggestions, we'd be
more than happy to hear them out. Otherwise, we are all just wasting
time -- you writing these e-mails, us reading/replying to them. Time
that can be better spent doing more productive things.


Regards,
John
