All the good bugs are old bugs?

JIRA lets you vote on issues, and Atlassian's own JIRA instance has a few issues with thousands of votes. I wondered if there were any popular issues that had been created recently so I plotted the number of votes against when each issue was created.

The result is shown below. I think it means that Atlassian are already aware of what people really want from their product, or perhaps that they're doing a good job closing new issues as duplicates of older ones. What other meanings can you take from this chart?

Book Update

Now that JIRA 6.0 has been released I've started the update for Practical JIRA Administration. If you have any changes you'd like to suggest for the book then now is a good time to contact me.
