Hi Dan,

If you report bugs or suggest features, you should be prepared to
use the efforts necessary to test the fixes or features when RMS
(or others) has spend time on the issue.

Since you were the one to see the bug in the first place, or
the person to propose a new feature, who better than you can
judge whether the bug is actually fixed [in your setup], or
an added feature really matches what you proposed.

You cannot always assume that!

Too bad.  Maybe you should write in your bug reports, that you do not
want to test a fix, so that we at least don't waste our time sending
the fix to you.
