As an occassional contractor I get cc'd with notices of activity in
Bugzilla. You'd be amazed at how many "fixed" notices fly by each week
-- some days I see more of those than I see spam. :)
Kevin's stated objective for v2.5 was to address a majority of
outstanding bugs. This would normally be a tough metric, since new bugs
keep coming in while the others are being worked on (not to mention that
few companies dare to publicly state bug-fix goals, and fewer choose a
goal so aggressive).
But even with that, by my count the team has far surpassed the 50% mark,
approaching 2/3 if I read the numbers correctly. This is a big move
forward, esp. when viewed in light of the new features v2.5 offers:
industrial-strength encryption (opening up development opportunities in
banking, medicine, etc.), GTK appearance mangement (opening up
opportunites across the Linux frontier), and a bunch more.
So yes, there's still work to be done, and that work is being done with
the help of your reports posted to Bugzilla.
