Sorry for the wrong accusation: taking a closer look, the bugtracker
actually is very active.
The actual problem seems to be, that the link given on

A better link to give at that page would be
Furthermore, I would suggest, taking the <address@hidden> address from
the "contacts" page and instead mention it at the "bugs" page as a last
resort (for those who prefer email to the bugtracker).
Finally, I would suggest to set the "Status" field of old bugs to
something more informative. This is the simplest way to show any visitor
that bugs are not simply ignored.
