Er.  "Known bugs" are a subset of those things which are "bugs"; I don't see
many people who actually think it's a bug that only full members of the
project are allowed to vote.  (Most developers seem to agree that there are
bugs in our process for integrating new members into the project, but that's
not the same as saying that non-DDs should be allowed to vote -- voting
rights are one of the few privileges that are reserved only for developers,
and arguably the most important.)

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
