The numbers are not really relevant. We had ever a huge backlog of
issues that will never be fixed and where many of them are probably
obsolete or invalid today. You can also delete them all and can start
from scratch (by the way that would have been my preferred solution for
AOO after we migrated to Apache).

New issues in the last year (maybe last 2) are more valid and deserves
more attention because they are coming from real users who are using
probably one of the newer releases. But what do you expect of these
numbers what you don't already know? You can run more statistic but the
numbers won't become better. More important is to think about a solution
to really work on these issues and reduce the number.
