It's not that bad actually. There are basically two classes of bugs: those that 
can be fixed immediately ("The name of this street is spelled wrong", "This xxx 
doesn't exist anymore"), and those that require someone to go out and actually 
look at the situation there and record GPS traces. The latter are far more 
frequent. Of course they will not be fixed immediately, but they serve as a 
great reminder of where something is still missing or needs to be fixed. When I 
find the time, I sometimes go on "bug-closing tours".

IMO, OSB is already working quite well as it is. If we can integrate it more 
prominently into the OSM website, the better.
