This is great data, thanks for sharing Orion! I've cc'd the test@ list
as well since I think this is of value there.

I'm wondering if this was related to the anaconda storage re-write?
That doesn't explain the similar numbers from previous years, but it
would be interesting+difficult to map these trends to releases/features.

I've said this to you before, but I'll say it again ... thank you for
your contributions to Fedora installation validation.

Heh, cute statistic. It's a shame there are no door prizes for the
number of palindrome bugs. Otherwise, you would win them. :P

I don't think I'd call them 'not useful'. I subscribe to having more
data, than no data. Of course, as a maintainer I've never had to
DUPLICATE a large number of bugs. Your duplicate numbers above, while
yes they add time spent triaging and duplicating related issues, they
also impress upon the prevalence of the problem.

Congrats and cheers!
