I think you are missing the point that volunteers are volunteers,
there's no "assigning volunteer resources", that's a contradiction in
terms. If someone wants to fix a low priority bug while there are
hundred high priority bugs, that's great, it's one more bug fixed for
Derby. It could be that person's first step on the road to being a Derby
committer, it could be a committer finding ten minutes to fix a trivial
issue, doesn't matter, all contributions are appreciated.
