That´s what I thought, and it may still be true.  Unfortunately, feedback,
bug reports and even fixes and improvements experience so much unkindness
or ignorance in their reception that I´m better off finding a different
solution or fixing the bug myself, with very few exceptions.

IIRC, Matthew who started this thread gave an overly perfect example of,
mildly said, unkindness, on the Fedora mailing list.  All the more it is
surprising to see him asking for feedback yet again after he made clear
that feedback is genuinely not wanted, and even employed fashist methods
to supress it when he received feedback he didn´t like.

Just wait and see how he will like the feedback he´s getting here ...
