Right. Simply because these lists are assembled by someone

- who knows how to pick that reports from the mailinglists
- who knows how to sort them in a useful way

No it failed not. It is not perfect. Way more bugs, which have been
fixed or are in the debugging process, would have been unnoticed and
ignored otherwise.
