Martin Atkins: since I made that comment on your blog I’ve noted that one of 6A’s developers has committed a fix to resolve one issue and I have committed a bunch of test cases[2 3] in the hope of encouraging the remaining issues to be solved. But only because they proved to be a pain in my ass.
It looks like Martin is a glass is half full kinda guy, but I think he now has the answer to his question.
My experience is that things that people care about tend to get fixed. Perhaps not not right away, but eventually. At least when dealing with matters relating to unambiguous specifications.
