I don't see why it shouldn't. For me, entering bugs and notes (=metadata) is 
work just as important as entering data. It doesn't matter if no one works on 
those bugs for a long time. I assume we have exponential growth in other places 
too, so sooner or later it will get done, it just takes some time. Meanwhile, 
it's good to have something to keep track of all the meta-information that 
people have already contributed.
