With such an answer, can't you see why I think you put me on ignore? 
After I asked you my question on G+ you have added multiple posts 
about your own development on KWin, so I would have assumed that you 
had read my question unless you were deliberately ignoring me.

Judging from your G+ posts, you find it very important to communicate 
with your users about your product, and mine was meant as a friendly 
question about your product. Trying to find where to file my bugs: is 
it kwin, krunner, kglobalaccel, plasma-desktop? A simple "can not be 
caused by kwin" would have sufficed don't you think? It was a 
honest-to-god question, not a complaint!

I know perfectly well what happens to "generic" bugs reported on b.k.o 
and want to be able to pinpoint the application developer who should 
look into my bug.

If you are a developer who does not care about fixing bugs in a bugfix 
release, and only care about progress for the sake of progress, you 
coulld not have made a better point here.

What I am experiencing in Plasma 5.2.1 is quite annoying to the point 
that it renders the DE useless for daily use, and my attempts at 
addressing this before thousands of other people are exposed to Plasma 
5.2.1 packages have failed.
Very disappointing. Whatever.
