Ah - I didn't realise the issue spam was that bad, previously. Fair enough!
Perhaps there's a market for a Bayesian filter or something on open source
projects' bug trackers, for rating on-topicness of submissions...

I am only able to use the stable, release versions of TSVN where I am, so my
reporting is limited to things like user interface niggles and the like, not
actual bugs (not that the two are separate, but you know what I mean). I
doubt I'd file often enough to merit the account. Currently, if I find
something, I post to the list - depends what you and others think of my
mailing list contributions, I guess. ;-)
