Default Is Bug Reporting Broken in OpenBSD?

I have put a fair amount of effort trying to report a pciide bug with the Via sata controller (emulates ide) to the OpenBSD developers without much luck. When I look at the nabble mailing list there are 3 pages of bug reports intermixed with a significant quantity of spam. It is reminiscent of the old bsdforums.

The messages that have more than 1 post are "bumps" by the original poster. Can't find one that a developer has responded to. The developers seem to shift their focus at times ie openports.se showed a flurry of activity but has been quiet as of late. Given that 4.9 is being mailed from the CD replicators, the release push should be over and to me it seems a good time to begin addressing issues for 5.0

I like the simplicity of OpenBSD but development is becoming more of a developers Cathedral than an Opensource Bazaar. That will have consequences. Anyway my 2 cents.
