Ah! grunt work.  Thank goodness there's only  512 of them.  oops 513...  

Honestly  not that bad. a lot of them are not even app bugs. meta bugs 
etc...  What should I do with them? Of course there are probably some 
that have no AppDB entry.  Swell, I 've already added one so I already 
know how to do that.

I need an account to get started and maybe a few pointers.
