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.
