this is not good citizenship... you want something? ask for it!

don't just wine that you're not getting it.

and -- in this project -- the right form to ask for something is to fill a bug / feature request. (maybe after having asked in here on the irc channel: you have asked in both, now it's your turn for the next step).

what 3 months is pretty old? in the last month we have seen bugs getting fixed, which were 5 years old!

if you go though the notes under the bug report, you will see that the developers didn't understand what you meant at that time... maybe, now they understand...

you may try to revamp the bug report by putting a new note in there, asking if the devs have now understood what the problem is... or trying to give some further explanation (with better examples) on the matter...
