Click on "Total" and you get it sorted from most buggy to least buggy.
(I do not know if this sort flag can be made part of URL).
Lazy to click? Here is Top 10:.

How many of these bugs have "abrt" in the subject?
For Python's NEW bugs its about 2/3rds of them.
abrt consistently gets the component wrong for Python bugs; initially
any time a Python script segfaulted (thus crashing /usr/bin/python) abrt
assigned the component as python. For a while this was fixed, and it
filed the component as whatever the bottom of the stack was. But it
regressed a while back.
I have a script that automates some of the workload of reassigning the
component back to where the bug really is, but it currently requires
some manual intervention:
so inevitably I don't run it on every bug that comes in every day, and
so I gradually get behind.
Of course, architecturally, this is completely bogus - it's insane for
bugs to be filed in bugzilla for segfaults and for me to be running a
script when I get emails in my inbox to try to triage them.
What we really should be doing is have abrt report crashes to a
dedicated crash-reporting db (I believe the retrace server is this), and
the crash-reporting db should load the coredump with the right debuginfo
packages, and triage accordingly.
In particular, I think the right way for retrace server to triage is to
run Python code embedded within gdb. There are a ton of little
heuristics about such code:
that need to run server-side. In particular, for scripting languages,
it's most useful to be able to extract the script-level backtrace from
the C-level stack (i.e. "what was the Python code doing?")
has some smarts for doing this purely from a textual backtrace from gdb,
but running code like this directly within gdb on the retrace server
would likely get better results.
And most overloaded assignee is:
again click on "Total".

 I know there can be plenty of metrics, I just used this one.
