Among other things, README says:

"""
Each test should have a link to the bug report:

        # http://python.org/sf/BUG#

"""

but the only such link is found in crashers/infinite_loop_re.py and points to a closed issue 1541697.

It looks like the purpose of Lib/test/crashers has changed from being a repository of outstanding bugs to a repository of crashers that are not considered to be bugs.

That's a fair assessment. A lot of the bugs that are easy to fix got closed out a couple of years back. The rest are (I think) considered too difficult and too marginal to worry about.
