Well, you can't prevent anyone from reporting bugs, but the quality of the
replies can be improved. Is it possible to have some kind of "canned
replies" in bugzilla? So that when resolving a bug against e.g. the win32
installer as NOTGNOME, an explantory text is just one click away?

I'm not sure if I agree or not, but I'd like to see some requirements tied
to featuring installers in bugzilla. This isn't directed against anyone
directly, but a clear set of rules should be created. Do you want e.g.
WinGIMP or MacGIMP to use bugzilla.gnome.org? What about other Free win32
installers of GIMP?

If you think that Sven wrongly resolved bugs as NOTGNOME, please list them.
Then it would be possible to discuss the sepcific cases.
