The Bugzilla search result page permits you to request an XML format or CSV file.  This permits you to use XPath/XQuery or a spreadsheet program to compute summary statistics.

I imported a CSV file into Excel and used Excel to compute the number of bugs and their age.

There are currently 30 "open" (NEW) A11Y bugs with an average "age" of 67.25 days.  The oldest bug has a date of Apr 8 and the most recent is Jul 27.

There are also 3 "open" (REOPENED) much older A11Y bugs.  I did not include these in computing the "age" value above since they are quite a bit older and would have biased the statistic (in my view).

BTW I ignored bug 7260 which is about an A11Y test suite.

The modified search I used to generate the CSV file is at:

BTW I also looked for the number of RESOLVED bugs.  There have been four A11Y bugs resolved since the beginning of April:

a) 9437 is marked as RESOLVED but it was escalated as ISSUE-109,
b) 9485 was REJECTED,
c) 9804 was a DUPLICATE,
d) 9835 was created to be a bug related to ISSUE-66.  When the W3C WG accepted this bug the Editor made a change to the W3C spec but NOT make the same change to the WHAT WG specification.

So basically this research seems to indicate that very few if any A11Y bugs have been processed since the beginning of April 2010.
