Team of bugzappers sounds ok, but I'd rather leverage the community
at the lowest/earliest level, by giving the report at least the opportunity
to say, for example, "this looks like a filesystem/ext4/xfs/network/scsi/whatever
Er, to be clearer, I mean in a bugzilla-searchable & classifiable way.
Not just comments.
And then I'd see it, for the relevant buckets.
Today I don't even look, because it's just a giant stew.
So if we can't do better on the filing end, then maybe a team of bugzappers
is warranted ... but can't we do better on the filing end?
If I had a filesystem-related bucket or buckets to look at for fedora kernel
bugs, I'd do it. Esp. if it sent me email.
