Can you force that ratio? Can you force people to change the rate at
which bugs are introduced or closed? No. You can't force volunteers to
do anything. That's the reality of the situation. Reiterating what you
would like to see is not going to help find a real solution for dealing
with a release.

Why should the presence of bugs in non-critical packages affect the
freeze date or raise the possibility of postponing the release? I'm not
interested in a requoting of the historic definition because I am
questioning the utility of that definition. Justify your statement.
