Right now I try to attack the bug list whenever I get time, admittedly 
it's not a regular activity though. I actually wasn't aware kolla and 
kolla-ansible had separate bug trackers, so far I've just been following 
the kolla one so this is good to know.

One issue I have is the fact that a large proportion of emails I get 
from launchpad are from people logging bugs just to submit a change 
(e.g. a change that needs backport or whatever). Hence the issues being 
filed by actual users having a problem can get drowned out by the noise 
from day to day development. It's not uncommon to come in to 200+ 
launchpad emails per day, there's simply not time to go through all these.

If anyone has tips on how to better filter these or ways backports could 
be tracked without having to create a bug just for record that would be
