A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
What else could one say? Most kernel bugs are related to specific hardware (that kernel's developers usually don't have).
> And although the kernel has its own bugzilla, kernel developers seem to ignore it as a policy.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the kernel's bugzilla an experiment to see if it helped? (and I think some kernel developers thought it was not worth the hassle).

Kernel bugzilla therefore expands the feedback loop, opening it to people
whose testing and bug reporting otherwise wouldn't be heard. When the
object is a stable kernel release and the testers are all volunteers,
that's a GOOD thing. =:^)
