http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=16525

Which leads to my next question:

Seeing as how no one has commented on the bug report, 
Craig doesn't seem to know it exists, and dIon either 
didn't search for it, or didn't find it, is BugZilla useful?

I'm happy to report bugs on list instead, but it seems like
a bug reporting tool is a better place to put them (mainly for
tracking).

If bugzilla provides a significantly slower turnaround than the
mailing list (and on my experimental evidence of 1 case it does)
then people (i.e. me) will stop using it, and that seems like it
will be counter-productive.

What's the best way to report/track bugs?
Post to bugzilla + the mailing list?
Include the component in the short desc of the bug?
Change the bugzilla emails so the subject contains the component?

BeanUtils 1.6 broke our app, (which really sucks, because Struts 1.1
relies on BU 1.6) and it doesn't look like anyone noticed the bug report.
