[wtp-dev] Re: [wtp bug] Reminder - Please verify resolved bugs


Although it is reasonable to ask that I verify bugs I have reported, I think it is unreasonable to expect that I will do so. If a bug is important, I think it is in the interest of the development team to verify it. If it is not important, then I think it would be acceptable to post a comment in the bug asking that the reporter verify the bug. If they decide not to, I think it would also be appropriate to close the bug after a certain amount of time has ellapsed. I don't think it is appropriate to continually send people emails asking them to verify bugs they have reported.

In my particular case, verification is not trivial since I do not use WTP on a daily basis and the WTP from the update site is not compatible with the latest Eclipse 3.3 builds which is what I use. I logged the bugs while doing some Calisto wide testing but had moved on to other projects before the bug were fixed.

Just my 2 cents...
