Linux News reports out of LinuxTag late last week have Andrew Morton, the second highest ranking Linux kernel developer, calling for a bug-fixing cycle to cut down on the growing number of bugs found in the latest kernel release. NewsForge contacted the number one man on the Linux project, Linus Torvalds, who acknowledged it might be the right time for a "bug cycle".

Problem is that these guys are human. Now who wants to sit around all day cleaning up stuff when they could be working on ultra cool feature X? nobody. The problem is that often times people dont follow up with their bug reports or the bugs dont reach the right people. So much code is getting changed that its a never ending cycle. Unless you stop every once in a while and let things get caught up.
