I really think we should focus on making our base system and other
important as stable as possible. I have once tried to organize a Base
Bugs Week, but it was unfortunately not very successful. So, yes, I'm
certainly for giving priority to certain packages. However, we should
make sure at the same time that "less important" packages are not
totally forgotten and left to rot.
