... or not necessarily interested in fixing bugs in their own area.
IMHO it's a bit pointless to think about the best "OSM bug tracking
system ever", if you enable people to give feedback but can't enable
them to "fix their own bugs" (e.g. with a "spot your own house and give
it a number application" or a "cool bug fixing community") or don't have
enough OSM mappers who *wants* to fix it.
Looking at the openstreetbugs in my area, a lot of those bugs are pretty
old and rotten. If we have lot's of bug reports older than a year
already, what's the use of getting millions of new ones without the
chance of being fixed?
So the first question has to be: How do we enable / motivate people to
fix bugs in the map - not how to easily report them!
