We still sort by priority when we go intentionally looking for bugs to fix, though, don’t we?  That just hasn’t happened much lately, because of being in such a hurry to get as much Qt 6 work done before the various deadlines that are all coming up way too soon.  During bug fix weeks, of course customer-reported bugs come first, but otherwise we sort by priority to find bugs to fix.  Of course anyone in the community is welcome to give it a try too.
