Ok, time to throw in my $0.02... I've actually had a couple of positive 
experiences, but one thing that I would really like to see is a better 
bug tracker, where anyone can leave comments, patches can be viewed, and 
anonymous users can read comments, especially those from TT's side.

The current system does feel a bit like a black hole... not like 
/dev/null, but like information only goes one way. (Yes, in my case I've 
had much better experience, maybe evidence that things are looking up 
:-), but I can understand why people would feel otherwise.)

dfaure: And yes, at a minimum the current tracker interface is not so 
nice :-)

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
