        I agree. The problem is that the un-sexy bugs just slip off
 peoples horizon; and something like a weekly report,
 especially on that mentioetioned idle time, would entice people to
 make the extra effort.

        Look at how much response there is to the RC bug postings.

        Also, if the time deadlines are used correctly, to weed out
 the noise in the BTS, this list should not be hard to maintain. 

        I guess this could be the bailliwick of the person niminally
 in charge, since it is unfair to put this additional task on Joey
 Hess (he has better things to do, maybe).
