Description danmanj 2014-06-06 04:12:18 UTC
Observe the saga of 

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?
