This slide is the one I was most reticent to show here, because it's possibly the least relevant to the kernel. GNOME gets along on bugs not because of me, but because over the last two years hundreds of evolution and GNOME users have stepped forward to clean up our bugzilla. It's really hard to know if the kernel can do the same. The release cycle is totally different (daily snapshots help drive a lot of our interest) and the nature of the bugs is very different as well. Hopefully the volume is lower as well :) At any rate, getting outside help is key- even just a part-time bugmaster or a small volunteer squad can help clean things up a lot. *cough*janitors*cough* If developers are doing it on their own (as Dave seems to feel he is) then a QA process is likely to fail.
