If you have suggestion for improvements, I would be interested in hearing
those.  The main problem that I see is that there needs to be a developer
interested in fixing a bug for it to get fixed.  We (as a community) can do
more to help make developers aware of bugs (I'm hoping that moving to
GitHub issues will make this easier), but I don't know of a good way to
incentive developers to work on specific issues when it doesn't fit
into their normal day-to-day responsibilities.
