7 That he comes back or not is of no importance to bug wrangling. Or at
8 least it should be. It is a mistake to solely rely on a developer for
9 such a task. Developers come and go without warning, he just proved
10 it, so ideally we need a team of 2 or 3 to handle bug wrangling. Also,
11 one single developer handling this puts him/her in such a prominent
12 position that it is bad for him/her, our users, other developers and
13 the entire project. We had too many examples of this.
15 Denis.
