Observe the saga of https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54372 Mesa libglx has a NULL pointer dereference bug, discovered by app developer. App developer debugs into libglx, understands problem, prepares patch. App developer sends patch to fix NULL pointer dereference to debian x-strike-force, and freedesktop.org. Nobody at debian or freedsektop.org ever fixes libglx, nobody ever even responds to the patch. App developer pings every 3 months for year, before giving up. A year after giving up App developer tries latest mesa glx, finds the same TWO YEAR OLD bug still exists. Seriously? WTF? How many years until you apply the patch?
