Same counts for me. Lots of bugs being tagged or closed.

Well, one thing he explicitly mentions is are the lintian warnings
which I brought up.
Nevertheless I still think nearly all of them were easy to fix and low
hanging fruits and Daniel Hartwig fixed them all in no time. So thanks
Daniel! So I still don't see the point why they shouldn't be fixed if
they were easy and quick to fix.
I don't think sponsoring requirements should be lowered at such
points, just because at _other_ points there's a lot of legacy in the
package, which I fully understand and respect.
