It's not enough to report a bug.  To get anything done you have to
show exactly how to reproduce it, and this is often neglected.  I've
seen bug reports with a "Needs Info" ticket stay like that for years.
 The author of the bug gets an email asking for email, but for some
reason never responds.  It's disheartening.

You are often told that many developers are volunteers and lack time,
but the real truth is that they never developed their mind-reading
skills :-)
