Damned straight.  Because open source is a community of users, the devs
are users, users are expected to contribute - not demand, and if the end
users see a problem and can fix it (I'm guessing from the brilliance
of your post that it would take you but 2 minutes to fix web.xml) then
post a patch for crissakes and get over it!

Bob - yes, open source is not for you.  Go bitch at someone who is paid
to bend over for you, you haven't earned any such privilage here.  Didn't
your momma teach you any manners whatsoever?
