OK, either you are trolling or you are serious and you have some 
brainpower to stand behind your words.

If the former, then read very 
carefully and then go and do something useful.

If the latter, then I have a couple of bugs for you to solve: -- that should 
be easy, just make periodic XML-RPC requests and store it in the 
database. -- OK, this is 
biggie, and you will need to work closely with people around . On the other hand, I heard they work on 
this, so any real help you can provide to them would be very 

And fixing either of these would actually help somebody (me 
included; yes, I would love to click on the button "Move 
upstream" in RH Bugzilla) to fix bugs better. Your suggestion 
(aside from making a lot of work for somebody else, not talking 
about huge costs in hardware and bandwidth -- and yes, they are 
huge, just believe me) doesn't seem to help to anybody.
