As I already pointed out: One of the things that - IMO - needs touching
is Bugzilla. We have far to many bugs which are open. I suspect a great
number to already be either fixed or duplicates of other bugs.

So the simplest thing you really can do is to take a look at bugs that
bug you and see if there's other, related -- or equal bugs.
