I think this is a good idea. 

Just to bring some numbers into the discussion: last week I did an
initial triage of all unconfirmed/undecided apport bugs (ask for
retrace, set assignee, etc). Now the number is ~400. The Desktop Team is
following up on its apport bugs quite ok, other areas are not covered
well at all.

Also I think that most of the unique crashers will have been reported by
release anyway.

Have a nice day,
