Speaking of duplicates, I would like to add something I noticed in a Plasma release
announcement a few weeks ago. There, it was written that over 1000 bugs were fixed. That
sounded pretty much and I checked and found out that about half of them were marked as

"In the run up to the Plasma 5.5 beta an incredible over 1,000 bugs were fixed."

Me personally, would not have counted those duplicate bugs but on the other hand the
number of bugs was declared as "incredible"; so nothing to complain about. ;-)
