It's a fact that our releases and regression fixes are driven by the bugreports
we get. If we had 20-30 more 3.4 regressions about compile-time issues,
probably we would have not branched at this point, and people would be working
on at least some of them. Jan did an amazing job and fixed many compile-hog and
memory-hog reports in time for 3.4 - but he knew about it because we had a
report with a testcase.
I apologize with Marc, he was surely the wrong person for my rant. It's just
that there are too many generic complaints on the list and only a few
bugreports. As someone else said, a complaint on the list is forgotten in less
than a week. I should do like most developers seem to do - just ignore and
forget the complaints and go back fixing bugreports.
