Topic or tag is quite indifferent to me.

* it would be nice to show the creation date rather than the activity,
older issues should be displayed on top of the list by default so
that they will get more attention
* what about to list all the bugs on the same page? It is quite
annoying to browse through many pages, having all the bugs on the
same page would be much simpler.
* issue filtering: for example I might want to see only the issues
related to topic1+topic2-topic3 which are older than two
months. Would be this possible?
* a topic-cloud displayed somewhere in the page would be cool
