He said he searches them, I didn't hear he keep them open to fix them.
My experience though is that it is not fair to keep bugs open for the
reporter and for other observers if there is no intention to act on
them for real but just keep them open "just in case".

It is my opinion though, I do not want to force anything, I can only
say I was driven away from bugzilla pretty quickly the other day as,
the way it is now there is no way to find good, actionable, relevant
bugs in the noise.
