If the complaint is a common one, it would be better (I would argue) to fix the problem immediately in one branch of the software and let development continue separately. Doing this fixes the problem, reduces support questions, reduces time spent answering the same question over and over, and improves the stability and quality of the overall product while improving the user experience and perceptions at the same time.On Sat, 2007-06-16 at 20:36 -0500, David Douthitt wrote:Mike McGrath wrote:Another thing that comes to mind - I don't know if this is already done,Yes, the code dump is ugly but the accounts system is being completely re-written so all work to fix the current system has basically beenput on hold, though the complaint you have is a common one.or if the discussion on it has already been thrashed to death - but why not use Subversion and two different branches, one being a development branch and one a stable branch?

Quoted from earlier:"Yes, the code dump is ugly but the accounts system is being completely re-written so all work to fix the current system has basically been put on hold, though the complaint you have is a common one."
Anyone is welcome to submit a patch though I'd prefer they spend that time working on the new account system instead.
