I think this new process is great. With the patches filed on bugzilla
you know for sure your patch will not be lost if overlooked. This is
a great step forward imho.

However, it seems like patches are now not picked up at all anymore. I
did not count, but I think I have not seen (m)any commits based on the
patches filed through bugzilla. I guess this is due to the fact that
old habits  of the "committers" take some time to be changed into new
habits and maybe also because of the summertime.

That said, I hope that everyone will get used soon to this great new way 
of submitting patches...
