My current listing of bugs reported are under 10 items. i am sure that 
there are many floating around that have ong been resolved but I lost 
track of where they were filed. some of these improvments will clear 
room for the developers to do acual bug resolving  by reducing the 
"never mind, it is fixed now" bugs thst are part of the clutter. Better 
tracking of bugs individuals file will help things along a lot.

Bugzilla in general has improves a lot from where it was a short time 
back. I am sure the trend will continue.

For this thread in general, FC3 is now legacy and cleaning out the 
bugzilla outstanding bug load is one of the better aspects with it 
transferring hands for responsibility for keeping it a secure release. 
Dedication for keeping FC3 updated pretty much in sync with FC4 updates 
helped to make its transition to legacy a well maintained version.
