Report it via BZ or PA BTS! (Exactly like you did)

I ask everyone to be patient, though. I do fix look at those bug
reports and fix them, but only shortly before the next release.

The point of my mail is just that statistics about the "buggyness" of
software based on bugzilla data is bogus.

Uh, system-wide mode is not really supported anyway. On Fedora I chose
to setup PA as a session service, and that's what is supported. But
that's a different story.

I clean up BZ everytime I do a new release. "Clean up" as in "fix all
relevant bugs".

Use BZ or the PA BTS -- You did everything right!
