Sure we were reading the same text!
you didn't quote an additional paragraph of your previous e-mail:

    Even if I was willing to donate a lot of time, though, would it matter?
    It seems from the above that you do not find and issue tracker useful in
    general, which makes such a question of no practical consequence.

So.. I'm reading your sentence in this way: "I'm willing to donate time 
if this is of any interest".
Maybe instead of answering yourself to your questions it would have been 
extremely appreciated a sentence like:
"I can offer part of my time for keeping the tracker going on and in 
order. Maybe with some help from some developer..
Would this be an option?"

Am I wrong? I don't think so.. 

Part of my message was sarcastic (maybe the first two lines) but the 
rest was serious. I really believed that you wanted
to contribute to the CP2K project with some human time. And taking care 
of the bug tracker on BerliOs would have been definitely an help!

I understand that you may not associate bugs to people.. but as you said 
you don't have necessarily enforce this feature! (quoting your text!)

It would be enough for you to check messages.. check if they are serious 
bugs.. reproduce them.. keep the tracker clean and in order.. provide a 
pre-digested information to developers.. This would be already extremely 
helpful and I don't think that you need more than a user competency for 
doing this.
Does this fit with your time offer? I think so..
