Hi Alex,

my two cents.....

It is IHMO correct (all 6 months) to check if bugreports are actual.
The problem is that only one (and occasionally two) devs actually is/are 
working on the code. But this not the problem of QA.

Why are you confess? The procedure of QA is another problem than the 
absence of dev.
