[ given the vast disparity in time-to-file (1 minute) vs.
time-to-fix (5 man days avg) ] correlation with 1 developer investing 5 days to fix it vs.
maybe hundreds, thousands or even hundreds of thousands of users
wasting for example 5 minutes per day due to the bug.


Plus the hundreds of thousands that give up on LO *because* of the bug.

The logic that "a bug is not important because not many people report it"
has a big flaw: most people give up without bothering to report... (and in
the case of Bugzilla, reporting requires quite a lot of effort)

My suggestion? Change volunteer model. 

In other volunteer based organizations (humanistic, animal protection, etc),
people agree to do work on tasks attributed to them even if that is not what
they feel like doing. The "do whatever you feel like" model doesn't work.

My 2 cents.
