So it's better to submit a bunch of patches simply correcting typos than
trying to get to know where (or who) the problem is?

Sorry for "spamming" those thousands of drupal-users here. But i don't
get it: Even if i stay on dev-linuxes, with dev-kernels, dev-drivers,
dev-software, ... the times someone submitted code with such simple
typos in the recent years would be under 10.

On the opposite i have a module where the devs (or maintainers)
constantly check-in - easy to fix - bugged code. If this is common in
the drupal-scene we would have to change something about it...

But ok. I'll get a cvs-account and commit about 10 patches a week
countaining commas or something like that...
