More mailing from BTS?
Currently, BTS sends weekly two mails to debian-devel-announce - one about
WNPP and one about RC bugs.
I think it will help to improve Debian quality if several more lists will be
"broadcasted" by BTS:
- Bugs that have "patch" tag for (e.g.) 2 weeks (and don't have "wontfix"
tag). Broadcasting such information will help in (seems not rear)
situations when random people submit bug fixes but those are ignored by
not-very-active package maintainers.
- Bugs that are more than N months|years old (and don't have "wontfix" tag).
Broadcasting this information will motivate people to fix or close those
bugs at last. If package maitainer doesn't deal with a bug for a year, he
probably needs help, even if he didn't add "help" tag to the bug.
- Packages with more than N bugs (I don't know what is a good value for N.
Maybe 30 or 50 or 100). Packages with huge bug lists probably need
Almost every RC bug list mailing gets some positive discussion on
debian-devel, and some bugs get fixed. I believe that these additional
mails will have the same effect.
