Thank you for this information. Regarding this particular bug, it is too 
serious to leave to #3, and we don't have the wherewithal to do #1 so we may 
try to do #2...but will likely need funding partners...which brings us to #4: 
work together to get it fixed.

Bug targeting is done by one of the members of the drivers group. It is usually 
done only for bugs that have patches or where someone is working on it and is 
likely to have a patch ready in time for the release. We (mostly I) sometimes 
break the unwritten rules and target bugs prematurely.

As for how to get specific bugs fixed, you basically have 3 options:

1. Fix it yourself.
2. Hire someone else to fix it.
3. Wait for someone else to do 1 or 2.
