Hey! Great team.

Please don't forget the "Short-term target", there is a thread and a 
wiki page on this:


But it seems that at least the thread is not updated in the last weeks.

Please don't forget that making good reports is also a hard and unpaid 
work, sometimes even frustrating (e.g. double reports due to the chaotic 
bugtracker with no simple way to search (hint: use the CSV Export to 
search...)). So *I* think that a week to react is a bit short, 
especially if it is a bug which strikes when a project needs to be done, 
then you tend to write the first report and go on to find a workaround 
which will fade the focus to other things.
