I agree it can be weeks or months before issues get dealt with,
I was explaining *why* that was :-). It just bugs me to get
criticized as not being responsive when I've 2000+ outstanding
issues to deal with. The issues I work on I'm *very* responsive
on, I just can't get to all of them.

Yes, this is the scalability argument in another form.... I'm
trying to expand the pool of people whilst maintaining quality
as much as possible. There's just no magic bullet I think. It's
just lots of hard work :-).
