BTS works well if enough human resources are available for fixing a
bug in one-to-one way.  But, ALSA development is certainly no such a
case.  It doesn't scale at all.

Thus, currently, you'd have far more chance to show your problem by
posting to alsa-devel ML than BTS because it's open.

I once suggested to feed all BTS inputs to alsa-devel ML because I was
too tired of responding each, but this didn't work either.  It ended
up with flood of bug reports just like SPAM.  The bug resolution
didn't get improved and the list became unreadable.  So it had to be
stopped.  A sad but true story.
