    On linuxtoday's talkback a user complained that keeping track of Bug
    top20 and using votes in BugZilla is a waste of time since developers
    don't care anyway (his particular complaint was with the font problem,
    the bug being 18+ months old).

    The other day I closed a bug with some 50 votes or so, and felt mighty
    good about it too :) Doing so, I had a thought: how about keeping track
    of how many votes the developers "earn" by closing Bugs.

    I'm not sure if it would be worth making a pretty graph of, but for a
    start, it might be interesting to just add a sub-section to AWN
    containing a list of Bugs with votes that have been closed and verified
    in the past week. When there's enough data, make a graph of how many
    votes were "earned" by developers in each week.

    Something for the next AWN editor(s) to think about.
