Yes. Issues can sit for years before getting fixed, it is normal workflow for situation when there are much more issue reporters than developers.

close all bug trackers -> no more bugs -> declare perfect D stability sounds like a plan :D

issues.dlang.org is primarily for discussing bugs, github pull requests are for reviewing fixes. Moving to github has a been a great success, but it lacks a lot of the features of bugzilla (issues.dlang.org) that are important for bug tracking, hence the split. Github, however, is *much* better for reviewing patches.

I'm sure you have your reasons. The problem with an attitudes like this is they're a proxy for further and larger difficulties in working with a person. We're shorthanded enough to not pander to such. If you go to any OSS community, each has a way of doing things and can't possibly be accepting of anyone's idiosyncrasies.

There would be a lot more frustration if the tracker didn't exist. It seems you're not willing to look beyond one bug report that's not two months old. There's a lot of activity going on. Andrei

You spent the effort implementing a fix, the time talking about your fix but cannot be buggered submitting a PR for the fix? D has a problem ATM of too many talkers, not enough doers. Please submit a PR if you have a fix for anything in the bug tracker. bye, uri

one fix at a time, not more. the first one is still sitting in bugtracker, collecting dust. maybe after it will be reviewed i'll find some motivation to fill another ticket... in a month... or two... or six... anyway, sorry for the noise. i'm really annoyed and just wanted to tell the world about it. sorry again.

Then paste the fix here and allow somebody else to do the boring PR stuff for you. Just saying "I've got a fix but not sharing" sounds childish.

Our release czar converted it to a pull request: https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos/pull/2336 You should add unittests to your fix. I've approved this one but the best way to go if you want to be happy in this community is to get over yourself. Andrei
