Launchpad is drowning in obsolete bug reports

Bug #160149 reported by Ketil Malde on 2007-11-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

When I'm looking for bug reports that are relevant to my problems, I tend to find tons of bug reports dating back several years. Typically, somebody is reporting some obscure installation problem, somebody else commented "that's funny, did you try this?", and the bug report then lies fallow since Breezy. I guess this partly explains why there are ~10 000 "new" bug reports in the database?

Who - if anybody - is responsible for dealing with, respondig to, and closing bug reports? I usually file reports when I encounter a problem, but Launchpad is feeling more and more like a black hole where bug reports go in, but nothing ever comes out of it.
