If a bug will not be fixed, judged by::
- The bug description
- The time it has remain open without action
- The lack of a patch provided for the bug
- The lack of assignment or interest of a sponsor
This means it is an unsponsored bug. It should not remain open forever.
The bug collector is not a substitute for documentation and issues that
will never be resolved should be closed. Otherwise it wastes the time of
I think the current collector is a bit flawed in the available statuses.
There is no specific way to denote an issue as "won't fix" which means
that it is possibly a bug, but either it is not fixable, is not deemed
worth fixing, cannot be fixed with the information provided, or nobobdy
has fixed it for years so it's not gonna happen.
I chose to reject the bug hoping that it would cause a reaction, which
it did. I'll admit that "reject" is not exactly the right status,
however the right status is not currently an option for the collector.
Since I can see you feel strongly about this issue, please feel welcome
to reopen to bug or change it to a status that better suits it. At this
point I see no chance of it being fixed without a champion, however.
