That's why i was considering the "special category" for normal user
submited bugs. That apparently isn't possible ... but we can find other
ways. The idea is to have like a "moderation" process which would enable
to validate/invalidate the ticket. We could even add a policy where a
ticket that doesn't get the feedback needed to acknowledge/solve it for
say 1 month will be automatically destroyed.

Trying to do something will IMO make most of our user's VLC experience
better ... and maybe even make it easier for people to get involved in
the project. We simply can't continue handling all the trac/mailing
lists/forum/IRC interaction with only 10 core people.
