I closed a bunch of very old crash bugs (ie. 0.74b2, 0.74b3).
I suggest anyone with some spare time and sufficient rights can just browse a bit through mantis and close old bugs / try to confirm others, ie. do bug triaging.
Together with some fixes and some closed bugs for other reasons we're now down to only 3 pages again
(excluding features and anything already closed/resolved)
Also do mark bugs as needing feedback if you don't understand the report, and close bugs that were marked as feedback half a year ago but didn't get any reaction yet. That way we may actually be able to get through the bug list some time
