I think it would be interesting to see this from another perspective,

Where was this vote?

Well, this small project called Debian uses it. KDE's old BTS was an
ancient fork of debbugs (and thus in no way representative of what it is

I agree that there are definitely more important things to concentrate
on (sigh). However, I don't have the skill to touch core code (nor the
time, really), and I can't work on Kopete since I have no real home net
connection (only a temporary modem hooked up to a Windows box), and
IMing from work would be so very wrong. Thus, this is a pretty good
project for me to be working on IMHO.
