	:-) Sure - but a developer's daily interaction involves using many bug
trackers - from LibreOffice, to SUSE, RedHat, Deb-bugs, Apache Issues,
etc. having a single page that lets you get to them easily can be nice.

	I agree that wiki pages don't help; but having a convenient developer
default-page that makes it easy to get to the bugs you want - and also
prompts you with the last 5x new regressions, and a competitive
component vs. component bug chart and ... - might do some good. No doubt
it could all be done in a pile of Javascript or something :-)
