Comment #2 on issue 1608 by percival.music.ca: patch to prevent rests from shifting

err, really? I don't see any patch for issue 1604. If this patch is supposed to fix that issue, could you state that explicitly, and add the patch-new label to that issue, and the above link?

(no, I haven't read issue 1604 in detail, nor the emails about these patches, nor the patch itself... but the whole point of the issue tracker is that we shouldn't need to read stuff in detail to get the general idea.)

I'm removing the Duplicate label until this has been clarified; I'd rather have a bit of extra noise rather than lose a patch or bug.

My fault, Graham. I raised issue 1604 last night, and Mike posted a patch on reitveld in response, this morning. Unusually for Mike, bless his productive cotton socks, his posting on -devel actually referred to 1604. I hadn't gotten around to adding a note on 1604 to refer to Mike's reitveld issue. Yes, 1608 is a duplicate.

I see there is a feature request outstanding on the codereview issue tracker, asking for grouping of issues by project, but that is a halfway measure for us: our problems come from issues being reported and discussed on any one, two, or all of three mailing lists, while patches are discussed, but not trackable on a separate system entirely. This incident may well serve as the classic example of the problem.

of those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who
have too little.
