Half a year ago, I have ranted about Fedora maintainers ignoring my bug-report #240070 for several months, and then just asking to verify that the problem still exists in the current version, without any attempt to reproduce the bug (do not even think about attempting to solve it). Well, here is the summary of the development since then (you can also read the comments to this bug yourself):
The bug has been originally filled against Fedora Core 6. Since then,
I have reproduced it on Fedora 7, and also Fedora maintainer
has verified it on his workstation. He subsequently changed the
distribution" attribute to "
so that the bug did not get lost when FC6 reached its end of life.
Well, it did not help.
Without any other maintainer attempting to look at it, today I have got another automatic response:
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained [...]
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change the status to ASSIGNED.
Just to be cooperative, I have verified that the bug still exists in F7, F8 _and_ the current rawhide. Can anybody tell me how should I report Fedora bugs in so they do not get lost? The bug #201436 is another similar case - read its comments if you need a sad reading for the weekend ...
