I'm not a big fan of your metric, but if you are using it please note 
that at least the following issues make your numbers at the URL you are 
referring to [1] lower than they actually are:

- relevant pseudo-packages are not listed (the "kernel" pseudo-package 
  alone has 3 RC bugs)
- the exclusion of bugs that are tagged both "sarge" and "sid"
  (e.g. #303860) is obviously wrong

       "Only a promise," Lao Er said.
