I'm *guessing* it's fairly normal and expected. Note that in that time
we've added 180 odd packages to the distribution, incorporated glibc2.1,
PAM, and god knows what other stuff.

Further, you'll note that even with the fairly consistent bug-elimination
tactics we were applying during the slink freeze we weren't really doing
much better than keeping the number of open bugs about steady.

I tried doing some statistics a while ago to see if there were any
particular areas it might be worth fixing, but there didn't seem to
be. Of course, I didn't look particularly hard either.

Also, that graph has a variable scale -- use


for a scale from 0. The trend is still noticable, but it's not
