[Koha] Vote possibility in Bugzilla

Hi Owen :)
Yes, it's clear that it should be mentioned that it's not because a BZ is in the top that it will be developed without funding. Perhaps, it could be added on the main page of Bugzilla?
KohaLa is funding developments and perhaps Koha-US or other groups do that?
It could be interesting for our members to know what enhancement wish is popular.
And, it could be a good way to know what Koha users are interested in (at least, for the Koha users that go in Bugzilla). It's not really user friendly but it can do the job?
It already exists, we could try to use it?

Bugzilla votes are problematic, because there is no way to promise anyone that a bug with a lot of votes will get worked on. It's kind of like when someone posts on an enhancement bug saying "Why isn't anyone working on this?" Which bugs are worked on depends entirely on who is being paid or who has volunteered.

I like the idea of highlighting bugs which are popular in votes, but I think if we had something like a regular email to the mailing list we'd have to make it clear that it was informational and folks who are interested should see about sponsoring the work somehow.
