Because nobody other than me is fixing the problems right now, and the
bugs will go stale. And if someone is available to fix bugs, you only
have to spend 5 minutes working with the image to encounter several of
them. A bug tracker is needless overhead for such early and "loose"

This of course will change with time, if the project continues to progress.

As this is a topic purely related to Sugar you are welcome to file a
bug on the SL bug tracker, or start a discussion on the sugar mailing

I should also clarify that if you have an easy solution for a bug
(such as: add package XYZ) you are welcome to file a bug - by "only
file bugs with patches" I guess I meant "only file bugs with patches
or simple solutions"

I'm just trying to focus and organize the OS-level work, and to avoid
wasting time on bug tracking in this early stage. Thanks for working
with me on this...
