Hi Ken

But, basic things should work right.  In my list I have here, but have 
not tested in 4.x.x

You are right. It is sometimes amazing how simple things don't work or stop
working (regressions)...
But overall they tend to get better. I sincerely recommend that you give
version 4.1.3 a go.
If it still doesn't work for you, then try again when 4.1.6 is out. Or
4.2.3... Never try x.0 versions ;)

No, but the quality mechanic says "I'm booked up for a month, if you can 
wait that long."  Then he'll fix it, he won't ignore you.  That gives 
you the option of waiting or finding a new mechanic. 

Very interesting point. That is indeed one of the flaws in the volunteer
method used in this project...
There are other volunteer models that would probably work better.

Contributing by reporting issues is all I can do for any software, but 
eventually you hope to see things you find fixed.  You find theses 
problems because they are features of a software package that you use. 
After some period of time, when things don't get fixed, you begin to 
think, "Why bother?"

That is another good point. If people bother to report a bug and it is not
fixed for years (no matter how small or insignificant) then they are very
unlikely to bother to report another one...

In the end, the main enemies of this project are: the sheer size of the
project and  the volunteer "do only what you feel like" model.

Best regards,
