Michael Scherrer also insisted on this - I have been somewhat naive, I 
now realise that this is a/the key issue.

Let me continue with the luxury of naivity: the triage team should not 
be let suffer silently in the background, but the "management" should 
make this a concern of distro policy. And, nevertheless: if the triage 
team (or ...) would have a little bit more breath (more active workers) 
for going beyond just distributing bugs among developpers, plus a 
"mandate" from management to lean on and prompt developpers, that should 
also be helpful.

To avoid overdramatising and comment on your first reply: before Mageia 
showed up, I have passed a lot of time on "distro - sniffing": compared 
to the distros I tried, and in my very subjective aperception, Mandriva 
Linux has a quite low rate of severely annoying bugs. Nevertheless, here 
is an issue to be addressed.
