Let's track the life of IDEADEV-445[/url]. It was opened at 22 Feb 2005 23:00. On 28 Feb 2005 17:56 Olesya Smirnova requsted more info about it and, go figure, immediately closed it as 'Cannot Reproduce'.
First problem. As the reporter, I got an email from JIRA telling me that the issue was CLOSED as non-reproducible. Unfortunately, I missed Olesya comment requesting more data. JIRA notification emails aren't exactly the most readable piece of information I've come across. It would be nice if Olesya asked for more info first, and closed the issue later if the info wasn't provided.
Anyways, let's keep going... On 02 Mar 2005 00:23 Gordon Tyler commented on the issue with a more detailed description of the problem, and also attached the info Olesya requested. So far, no answer.
On 22 Mar 2005 20:33 Gordon confirmed again that the issue still exists on a newer build. So far, no answer. Are closed issues ignored forever?
Today, I've opened another issue (IDEA-1414[/url]) and later realized that it isn't exactly new: it's the same as IDEADEV-445[/url]. In fact, this is what motivated me to write this rant. Can we get a word on this, please? As Gordon pointed out, manually reformat code thanks to this silly bug has been extremely time consuming. Can it be possible that me and Gordon are the only ones out experiencing this problem?
