I just found this page...
...which explains the ideas behind filtering bugs. It's actually
quite a simple explanation, and applies quite well to the gimp
when you substitute #gimp for #bugs :)
Anyone who wants to contribute to the gimp bug triage, but who
doesn't have permission to change milestones, please mail me, and
I will either get you sorted, or give you a list of people who
can change milestones (more likely the former).
Be warned, the pointy stick approach will be in effect - if you
make changes that you shouldn't (for example, to bugs in other
products than the gimp), you will lose your rights.
