This means the BTS is visible to everybody, even anonymously.
In other words, the BTS is not facebook, it's the old good open web.
It does not mean anybody has the right to decide on what bug I will be
working tomorrow, because we are an organization made by volunteers.

This means a lot of things. One of them is that we don't boycott the
use of Debian with non-free software.
But similarly to point 3, this one does not mean anybody has the right
to decide on what bug I will be working tomorrow, because we are still
an organization made by volunteers.

There was a time in which newly uploaded packages were announced here,
in -devel. If you miss such technical content I recommend that you
read debian-bugs-rc or debian-devel-changes instead, those ones are
really fun to read.
