That's the level I intend to work on.
Reported several hundred bugs in the past decade, both upstream and at 
distro level. The results were quite mixed; everything from new releases 
within minutes to personal attacks.
One thing I learned is that it depends a lot on the maintainer in 
question. Reporting Gnome bugs at Gentoo isn't a good way to spend your 
spare time, for instance.
Another one is that often for distros, anything else than packaging 
mistakes are not their problem and especially nothing to be fixed in the 
current stable version. Since the latest (i.e. unstable) version often 
depends on other packages (or later versions thereof) not in stable, 
this usually equates to "no support for the stable version".

Since you (as the Debian maintainer for Sugar) expressed interest in 
those bugs, I'm going to provide reports to Debian (as well).
