Debian got so many people doing what seem like thankless jobs in an effort to improve it. One of those guys is Alexander Reichle-Schmehl (look at my struggling tongue), who has for a number of months been pushing an initiative to fix a bunch of RC bugs weekly (example). This developer has been busy keeping track of RC bug counts, reducing the need for me to go check myself.
