The problem that I've had with that, is that it appears that the bug
tracker is not up-to-date and goes long periods with no activity. I
believe Peter mentioned this recently as well. A couple of examples:

This bug was filed in 2007, but was resolved in 1.5.11 I believe, yet
it is still open.

This bug was also filed in 2007, but appears resolved now.

It would greatly encourage use of the bug tracker if there was more
activity. Also, an rss feed might help (I'm not aware of one if there
is one already).
