This user vs your KDE (dev) people seperation make me feel really bad.
There is actually just a KDE community in which users build their own
system. Most of contributors are just normal KDE users who devote
their free time to make KDE better without any pay.  So when they do
have free time, they will use it to fix the bug which is the most
annoyance to themself. This is the characteristics of open source
projects without a company backing it.

So if you want to have a bug fixed, the fastest way is by fixing it
yourself. If you do not have time or skill, provide enough information
and show people the bug is important. Convince they to spend their
free time to fix it. Blame the whole KDE community is not the way out.
