We already have big number of users who do their own regression testing. But
what we don't have is developers addressing introduced problems in the
timely matter.

Some regressions are hard to fix. Some are easy. The best person to make
such a judgment would be the person who made the patch. However lots of
regression bugs don't even see a note from patch author. This is what I'm
trying to fix.
