Indeed it's hard but to me that doesn't mean ignore the problem.
REOPENED bugs are literally ignored by everyone - devs don't touch them,
QA don't touch them, they just sit forever. 275 isn't too bad for me to
handle alone and get them either into NEW or to UNCONFIRMED. After this
point, we can keep track of them better and keep them under control by
spreading out the work amongst all the volunteers. Not paying attention
to documentation shouldn't prevent us from at least trying to do it right ;)
