At the urging of kevin I signed on to the checkins list so that I could see the various bits and pieces of code being changed. If that's the only way of getting an idea of what's being done in the nightlies, so be it.

So why are some of the bugs in the Slim Devices Bugzilla protected from public view?

lets see, could be:

- a private branch for internal test of features not yet announced
- squeezenetwork bugs, for traking prior to the recent announcement
- hardware bug tracking which might fall into the category of "no comments on
future hardware"
- anything else that really isn't applicable to public contribution

all perfectly reasonable guesses.
bugzilla has various permission levels whereever its isntalled. Heck, it can
even be an accidental setting of a flag; I've seen that happen.

does it upset you?

Most likely those bugs were filed under a product of SqueezeNetwork, and
SqueezeNetwork bugs haven't been opened up to the public yet. It was
pretty much the same way when Squeeze2 was still under wraps, but
checkins there were on a private branch. I'd guess that once
SqueezeNetwork gets beyond the alpha stage those bugs will be publicly
available.

Indeed you can usually tell when a new product is going to be announced
because the number of private bugs soars...
