A little patience? As in half year is not enough?

Well, I think council should care about things that affect Gentoo as a
whole, and apparently that's not just me:
The elected Gentoo Council decides on global issues and policies that
affect multiple projects in Gentoo.
Broken bugzilla affects every ebuild dev, affects GDP, affects bug
wranglers, affects anyone else who's using it to track outstanding
project issues. How is this continuous borkage not a global issue that
council should discuss?

No, not really. Just that I'd expect kinda more proactive approach than
the one demonstrated fex. in
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128588#c29 (and a bit more
flexible approach to other alternatives, such as HW/hosting offers we've
received before) and that have been declined for various strange reasons.
