There are a lot of old forgotten bug in Malone.  Bugs without any
responses from anyone. Bugs that could be better sorted with simply a
few additional answers from the reporter (version of Ubuntu?, copy
xorg.log?, etc)  Bugs that were solved months ago but nobody bothered
closing the report.  And bugs that were not assigned to anyone and
appear to simply fall between the cracks.

It seems everytime I take a quick look at Malone I can find a few bugs
that needed some love;  so it really feel like it is the tip of a
large iceberg.

Hopefully the next bug/hug day will generates a lot of hugs :)
