As Ryan described each Wednesday until 2.3 there will be bug hunts,
which will be a great opportunity to collaborate on working on the
annoying bugs getting fixed!

#4570 is a good example of a bug that definitely could use some love.
Geoffrey, thanks for bringing this one to everyone's attention! Sounds

What are some other "massively annoying" bugs that might be buried
among the others?

Thank you,
