Two weeks ago, I added a list of useful Bugzilla queries at the bottom
of the download page for the developers' version of the Gimp:
The links allow you to see the list of open bugs or wish lists, for
all versions or only for the stable or unstable versions.  The bug
reports in which the version number is "unspecified" are assumed to be
related to one of the stable versions.  Once you have the result of the
query, you can easily sort it by clicking on the column headers in the
results page (personally, the first thing I did with Bugzilla was to
click the "Change Columns" link, add the Changed Date and Reporter
columns, and then sort by date).

When I have some spare time, I will also try to add more specific
queries (Windows only, all OSs but Windows, Linux only, ...).  For the
curious who have an account on wilber, these links are generated
semi-automatically from a set of definitions that can be found in the
file /gimp00/web-gimp/defines/links_bugs.def.

Very true.  You are doing a great job.  ;-)
