I see...  But unfortunately it would be difficult to mail the top 10
bugs to this list every month.  The first problem is technical: I
don't have the time to set up such a thing.  The second problem is
related to the information that would be sent: some bugs have a
summary (title) that is not very easy to understand, so sending that
to the list would not always be sufficient.

By the way, I just updated the page containing the links to some
Bugzilla queries and I added three new links that allow you to find
the list of open bugs that are not enhancements (so you only get the
"real" bugs).  Try it from: http://www.gimp.org/devel_ver.html
