Please fix more bugs (Was: December 2019 bug squashing)

Dear team members,

I love this initiative by Thorsten since its a great motivation to check
the list of our bugs.  I realise all the time that there are *really*
simple ones.  Some of them just need some asking back to the bug
reporter and realise that the issue is just solved.  Others are
containing hints what to do (despite not tagged patch) or so.  I managed
to have a more than two bugs per day rate and at least one was extremely
easy to solve.  So I really want to encourage everybody to follow
Thorsten's advise and have a look at the bugs page to pick your own bug.
It would be great to do it at least at a one or two bugs per week rate.

I'd like to repeat my hint on the bug statistics I just recalculated


Kudos to Michael who fixed quite some bugs this year.  So everybody who
wants to show up on the stats at the end of the year please hurry up and
find your bug of choice.

Kind regards
