Blocks like this are a key part of Mark + Leisa's design for the new
site. The principle (as I understand it) is "show the huge range of
stuff happening". Again, I defer to their expertise in these areas.
I have lots of opinions about UX and UI, but ultimately, there're all
based on speculation and my own feelings/intuition, not user testing
or other quantifiable methods.
Also, I reject the notion that the 5 most recent issues are
"useless". It's possible it'll help people avoid duplicates. Or, if
3 of the top five issues have titles like "Fatal error when upgrading
to 6.x-2.5" that might give you a hint to think twice before upgrading
to 6.x-2.5 when you're staring at that "recommended" release. ;)
Certainly, I think the 5 most recent issues is far more useful when
looking at a project node than "patch bingo" links. :( I'd love to
remove the contributor + developer blocks on project/*, but the last
time I did that (on the issue queue pages themselves), there was a
howl and outcry. So, I'll just wait for the initial redesign
deployment to finally kill those blocks from "my" part of the site. ;)
