No one has time to fix all of the bugs by themselves but by managing the 
team, it should be possible to get all of the required work done.

The PMC needs to develop a consensus about how bugs are handled in the 
official releases and then make lists of things that need doing.
If a bug is found and added to he JIRA, determining which releases it 
applies to should be part of the analysis.

If a patch is developed it should be possible to apply it to each 
release at the same time.
