There are over two thousand questions on Meta Stack Exchange tagged bug that have no answers (and haven't been closed). This doesn’t include all unresolved bugs, just the ones that haven’t had any answers at all.
Some of these look like they may have been resolved by changes that have been made since they were posted (such as by the recent changes to reputation), but are still here as noise, burying other issues that are potentially more serious (such as those that prevent a user from participating fully, or from logging in at all).
It’s obvious that this tag needs to be cleaned up. Issues that have been addressed don’t indicate that, and issues that haven’t been addressed are buried under all the noise.
Is there anyone at Stack Exchange whose job it is to monitor bug reports, or will it be up to the community to go through and answer all these questions (though most of us can do nothing about the status tags)?
