Abusing NEEDINFO

If you are trying to do some bug triaging in bugzilla, a good place to start right now seems to be the evolution bugs. Don’t be fooled by all the bugs classified as NEEDINFO : a lot of perfectly fine stacktraces are dismissed by Novell people, who just append “This bug report is not very useful because it does not describe the bug well, bla, bla, bla” to the report and close it as NEEDINFO (see for example this bug, this one or that one…). The simple-dup-finder was able to find duplicates for these bugs right away, without even manually selecting a bit of the stack trace… This kind of triaging is not helping IMHO.
