I know about those. The problem is, the bug dependency tree shows which
packages there are issues with, but not which packages already have
suggested fixes. It's pointless me trying to fix a package that someone
has already done some work on and made a suggestion for a fix.
Previously I could look down the list of packages with no bug reported
in Matt's reports and and I'd know that nobody had looked at those yet.
Now I need to look at the bugzilla entries for each package, which takes
far longer.

Indeed, but the package maintainers that have received the bug reports
are now in the best place to do that, rather than community members like
me who need to search through bugzilla to find issues that need fixing.
I'll concentrate on Extras for now, as it's easier to see what needs
attention.
