Beginner, I'm with you at 100%!!!

But by Gerhard words -- "Maybe the experience was that the patches
weren't worth the time or it was coincidence." -- seems to indicate
that it takes just a few seconds to trash some developers work.

Instead of helping new developers and give them support, so they can
me maintained and cherished... It's better to "rule them all with own

It's sad, but I will continue to do my work of reviewing, testing and
updating *THOUSANDS* of issues, even if I know that some core
developers do not do their jobs. And if it needs to have 2 "patchers"
for each queue, let it be!

Now, it is not admissible to trash so many people that give us so many
hours of work.
