As I said, very few committers are looking at the submissions in bugzilla.
And if the problem is that the submissions are not right. Then, unless someone
mentions what the problem is, there is no way it will be fixed by the submitter.

Putting my USER hat, I think it is understandable that people get frustrated by
the current process.

Yes. But once upon a time, small bug fixes like this one where dealt much more
quicker. Let me tell you what my problem is. I cannot adopt my own patch because
I do not have all the stuff necessary to rebuild a complete ANT 1.5 distribution.

So I am waiting for a nightly build with the patch so I can replace it for our project.
It is a problem, since people here assume that every task of ANT wil be available
as soon as the drop any needed jars, and if I build it myself that will not be the case.
