I suspect there are quite a few really old bug reports that have
already been solved but never closed. I bet in an hour I could wipe
out a couple dozen. I'll start from the oldest ones. I'm willing to
at least read through bugs with numbers 0-1000, about 50 bugs.
If anyone else wants to help, please just read the next 50 or so bugs.
Don't spend more than a minute or two per bug. Just check if it's
still present or not.
There's about 700 bugs filed. Another issue - why does the bug mirror
on www.debian.org not work? It says "The files here are checked every
30 minutes (last check 19:43:03 GMT Mon 05 Feb)"
