In my experience, it's had a bug report to fix turnaround time of a under
a day if you can give a complete and reproducable problem.  That's pretty
good for any problem, even trivial ones can't be expected to get fixed in
a matter of a few hours like I've seen with Helix Gnome.

Software has bugs, it's a fact of life.  New software is more likely to
have unknown bugs that affect more people.  What makes the Helix packages
so nice is the turnaround time for fixes.  I don't know how they do it,
but they do.
