I didn't take this personally. My problem is that script-fu _is_ not
properly maintained. I appreciate your work, but I fear that you are not a
good script-fu maintainer.

As I see it, you took over maintainance because it was orphaned:

I must admit that I have no idea how to edit bugreports or do anything
else about them. I did *try*, but the pages are not very helpful in
explaining how to use them.

Probably: I meant you should probably devote your time to more important
things, like you already do (the core, for example).

I think you do a [relatively] bad job in maintaining script-fu, just
because you are not the original maintainer, and you do a great deal of
other bugfixing in the core, so you must be very short of time.

No. I filed it, it got ignored. I reported it to the list, it got
ignored. I did more to get that bug fixed than you could expect from
anybody (because _I_ get asked about it twice a month)! I tried to contact
people personally about that bug (and a couple of others) about that bug,
and nobody reacted.

Do not ask me _again_ to file/report it.
