What would be the point to even start looking at an issue? You guys
(by "you", I mean "official" committers on public list) don't care
about people providing patches, might it be for trivial, obvious,
fixes. I'm not even talking about complex patches ... When you
eventually ends up providing a patch, you ends up being slammed a door
at by maintainers asserting their code is perfect, until logic and
user complaints prove them wrong.

That said, this comment is off-topic, but I will certainly re-state
this next month when I'll be ping'ing trivial patches.
