As far as bookkeeping, if you have an old bug, please work on it,
close it or re-assign it somewhere.  If we can't fix it, mark it as
"Won't Fix" with a reason as to why we can't fix this and move on.
There's bugs that have been sitting in there for a year that we
haven't touched because we don't have a way of fixing (i.e. Weird
google contact bug w.r.t. google contact sync).  We need those dealt
with so that they're not inflating our numbers.
