Kernel Natty Bug Handling

Registered by Jeremy Foshee

Continuing on the work we have completed in previous blueprints, I'd like for this session to focus on what can be done to continue our efforts in making bugs and bug work more of a fixed priority for the team as well as determining what changes can be made to our current method of determining the bugs to be put on the Top 50 list. We'll also review the utility of the Top 50 and gather ideas on improvements there should that process be seen as effective.
