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?
