"yes."  I look at it quite often.  I'd like to fix a lot of the bugs that 
are reported... however, often they don't include fixes, or the fixes are 
incorrect.  This poses a problem for a volunteer effort.

Both.  If someone wants to volunteer to work on bug reports, they're 
certainly always welcome to do so (send mail to core@NetBSD.ORG).  
Occasionally, Core asks someone if they'd like access to work on 
something specific, too (often at the request of a port maintainer).  In 
these cases, the individual has typically had a history of working close 
with port or subsystem maintainers.

Anyhow, just wanted to address that...
