I like that. Watching the testing and development of such a large project isn't a frequent opportunity. I feel lucky for being able to do so.

But I think more effort must be consumed in quality indicators like severity, priority and the keywords. Some bugs are 4xp or major or regressions etc without being masked as such. Many bugs are marked normal while they are minor or even trivial. In the past, I tried to make such suggestions (in specific bug reports). But I concluded that it would make more noise (bugzilla database growing and becoming less usable, as you had sometimes pointed out) than good. Maybe it's a human resource (triagers) problem, after all.
