A blocking of bugs that have the help message just submitted would be useful:

e.g. on Mapdust the first bug I've looked at is:

Description: Please let the OSM mappers know more useful information about the bug. Without proper information, they will not be able to solve the issue.

I saw the number of  1-2 out of 10 bugs are real map bugs and in my experience that is the optimistic number. The main reason I see is that routing errors and temporarily closed roads (e.g. unloading trucks) are reported as bugs. A low point was a GPS misreading of 200 m making the user feel to be on a totally different road.
