I don't always reply, because I don't always have anything to add to the 
conversation.  I do read nearly all the messages through the list. 
Important items are forwarded internally, but they are subject to 
different filters -- not every issue is equally important to each of us. 
  I know Tony and Arthur monitor the list as well, but Tony is busy on 
evs and Arthur is often traveling.

That is an excellent way to get a bug fixed.  Submitted patches all get 
reviewed and, unless they break something else, will typically be 
included in the next release.

Another way is to purchase support.  Not all issues on the OSS list meet 
the urgency threshold to pull our attention from the customers who pay 
for support.
