The issue: Hot off a skype chat: ▫ Whats the status on CB Author plugin for J2.5? ▫ If you’re viewing an article in category pages that screws up ▫ Have you proposed a patch fix to joomla for that ? ▫ No ▫ You should ▫ The last 3 times I proposed something I was ignored, ill spend the time when they begin to care ▫ You Really should.. ▫ Its frustrating because my time is limited, i have a lot to do.. daily.. from support, bug fixes, dev work, debugging, investigations, the list continues.. and when i take that valueable time to contribute to Joomla and they ignore me they might as well be spitting in my face ▫ ▫ ive posted on their tracker and on github, then im told to post on google grps... why have a bug tracker and github if youre going to ignore it
