You are demonstrating another fairly serious problem with
bugs in Debian, and that is you are taking this too

of bugs coming in, that's because *more people are needed*,
not because you are personally inadequate.  That doesn't

I have OOo installed and I use it infrequently. I'd be very
daunted if I were involved in it's maintenance. I must be
