Hi Robinson,

Just rethinking about all this, I realize I forgot the fact that it was 
corresponding from QA point of view.
I mean, role of QA team is to confirm bugs and provide additional info 
like bt, bibisect, etc. then role of dev team is to fix them.
So once a bug is confirmed with perhaps additional info, QA role is 
finished (except perhaps retesting with a newer version if it hasn't 
been touched during lots of time) and it's normal.

At first sight, since I was reading dev forum, I had thought that the 
dev team should consider in priority to reduce UNCONFIRMED bugs.

Sorry for the noise.

additional info like bt and sometimes fix just easy bugs)
