How many emails are you getting?

I think we need a very well triaged list of bugs. That's what I've been
trying to do with the Sugar component, I wonder what is the situation with
activities. It's a *lot* of work but I don't think there is any way around
it, it's necessary for the project as a whole, not just for new

Only on the top of that an easy-hack list is useful IMO. We should really
have only one keyword though and link it on the bugs.sugarlabs.org homepage.
