I think measures of non-security bug fix responsiveness are fine. 
Everyone ships with bugs, even if some ship with far more than others. 
Responsive in dealing with those bugs is probably as important as their 

Security related bug responsiveness is quite another issue. Do you 
realise the guy that wrote qmail has been soooo unresponsive that he has 
never posted a security fix since the original 1.0 release was shipped? 
It has been one of qmail's strongest attractions. :-)
