Adrian, why do you keep harping on this, and ignoring reality?
Kernel bugzilla has 1600 open bugs BECAUSE IT SUCKS.
How many of those are interesting and valid? How many of them are relevant? How many of them are duplicates?
And - how many of these bug reports have kernel's bugzilla ever forwarded to lkml so that other people could see them?

Is that number zero (because kernel's bugzilla is configured this way)?

Andrew forwards incoming Bugzilla bugs to the responsible maintainers (if there are any).

If it is considered useful it shouldn't be a problem to automatically forward all incoming Bugzilla bugs to linux-kernel.

Why isn't it done yet? If the bugs were already forwarded to linux-kernel (and perhaps, to linux-<subsystem> when possible, too), we would save at least two days of this long "Linux 2.6.21" thread...

For I somehow feel that most people here dislike bugzilla because of misconceptions - which only arose as is *really* misconfigured.
