We ask that they go in bugzilla just because just for bookeeping 
purposes and so that it doesnt get lost and forgotten.  Though at time 
bugzilla is neglected.  I will try to keep up with you on the reports 
that you send it. Im sorry I didnt do a better job in the past, I forgot 
about that bug.  Also, if you are in irc and something is small fix that 
you dont want to report to bugzilla, im usually in there and mostly I 
have time here and there to fix things throughout the day.
