Automatic Bug Triage Using Text Categorization

An extremely fascinating topic concerned with improving development process, not only in open-source projects, but in any project with a reasonably sized team and automatic bug tracking. A real money saver! A well presented paper (even though I got sort of lost in the details of the Bayesian algorithm). Results were presented clearly, even if they weren't as accurate as the authors would have liked. No effort is made to disguise the inaccuracy of the method. I think this idea is worth looking at, just need to swap out the Bayesian algorithm for one that actually works.
