No worries, there are people who read it and appreciate it!

I'm also asking myself where the time that I used to spend on RC bugs
went; I guess in fixing bugs in unstable and helping with some
transitions in the perl group; that took and takes enough of my time

And I agree that fixing RC bugs not only during the freeze but
continually would be good.
(Nevertheless, I think that a CUT/rolling/whatever would be
attractive and is not directly tied to the idea of squashing bugs.)
