Simple bug left unsolved


The "installation-reports"-package has about 1.500 bug reports. It is
A LOT...

Maybe one reason is that even the simplest bugs are just left unsolved. 

A friend of mine reported a bug (#468779) and informed about a simple
way to solve it. The reply from the maintainer was that it was
complicated so do something about.

A few days later we solved it for ourselves in 20 minutes. It was very
easy -- even for such amateurs like us. 

This specific bug report is about a new Intel network adapter. I would
expect A LOT more of innocent users to run into the same problem soon.
They may reject Debian for that reason.

Something should be done to have at least simple bugs resolved fast.
