Well, maybe I put it in the wrong words. What I meant was that on the 
one hand we don't care enough about the bugs to give them proper 
attention. On the other hand, moving them aside and let time tell which 
ones are important makes you lug around a list of old bugs that are 
still "there" and somehow put a weight on the "consience" of the team.

Well, I do hope that some will go in and "pick the low hanging fruit". 
If I could safely decide which ones are outdated/irrelevant I would have 
   already marked them accordingly, but I have no clue about the majority.

OTOH: as said before, the number of bugs not changed since 1st January 
are around 100. Addressing that number is much less intimidating than 
well over 300.

So I do hope that something happens before the end of November.

Bye, Helma
