But I honestly don't care how you _feel_ about a bug. There's a defect. It's a fact. The only way to change it is to work on fixing it. Feelings have nothing to do with it. It doesn't matter how polite or gentle you describe a malfunction. It is and will be a bug. There's no place for emotions when you wish to work with plain boring facts. And again, I do not care how _you_ feel about it. Actually I don't have any preference or emotional connection to most packages. All I care about is that they (1) install properly out of the box and (2) work reasonably. So if I have to file eleventy dozen bugs for packages you maintain ... your fault. Don't leave such a mess. Stop whining and fix those issues. Yeah, maybe that's insensitive. Maybe I'm a bit rude. But it'll make you focus more on doing things properly so I don't even have to bother you in the first place :) And if everyone does a good job it'll be more awesome for all of us.
