I had an oops with pre-2, and reported it, but never got a response. My
subject was descriptive enough that the appropriate person should have
seen it.

Is it normal procedure to not see a response to an oops? Now that the
bugs are less and less common, isn't it possible to keep a master list,
and check them off as time goes on (ie, the person that reported the bug
no longer can induce it?)

I certainly could wait until pre-3, see if the problem still exists, and
repost, but I'm sure a list would make sure the problem gets fixed..
