The main issue that this is meant to solve is that many of the people
working on openSUSE development have stopped paying as much attention to
the factory mailing list because it is full of foo is broken in
tumbleweed posts and they don't care about those.
Hmm seems to be counter intuitive "work on openSUSE developemnt, "do not
care about 'foo is broken' reports by fellow developers or users".
The aim is more making sure the right people get to care about the
issue, for example there is currently no guarantee the maintainer of foo
is using this list and will see the problem until someone creates a bug
report anyway. Currently instead the 90% of developers who don't use or
care about foo have one more email thread that they have to ignore which
eventually leads to them mostly ignoring the factory list and inevitably
missing important development discussions.
By creating bugzilla entries for the issue then the right people know
about the issue straight away and if they believe it will have a
significant impact on most users / developers they can choose to post a
warning to the list.
