Sounds impressive but I would like to see more bugs fixed instead of "the next big plasma applet". The number of open bugs is probably the same as the number of commits and it's a shame some bugs have been open for years (even when people vote for them).

I completely agree with this, but it is a shame some KDE fan boy has modded you down ..

He was modded down for being incorrect. The KDE devs do spend a lot of time fixing bugs, but KDE is a big project and so will have a lot of bugs. That's just the way it is. Also, old bugs aren't going to be fixed because they apply to KDE 3.5 and that is no longer being developed or supported (despite some distros still using it).

Here is what Bugzilla shows for the last 7 days: https://bugs.kde.org/weekly-bug-summary.cgi

Notice how half of the projects/components have actually closed more bugs than were open at the start of the week?

And for the last 31:
https://bugs.kde.org/weekly-bug-summary.cgi?tops=20&days=31

It's a little bit worse, but not by much. Plasma, while having a net increase of 68 bugs, still closed well over 600 bugs in one month. That's a pretty big deal.

So to say that they aren't fixing bugs is just nonsense.
