Please take a look at

reporter of this issue, you are copied with every message as well).

The order of code review and resubmission is:

Comment 1 by project member address@hidden, Apr 23 (44 hours ago)

Patchy the autobot says: LGTM.  But bad formatting everywhere: should be "for 
(UP_and_DOWN (d))"

Labels: -Patch-new Patch-review
Comment 2 by project member milimetr88, Yesterday (19 hours ago)

Macro for(UP_and_DOWN) and 3 similar. 
Replaces do{ ... } while(flip (&d) != DOWN/UP/... with a macro 
for(DOWN_and_UP/UP_and_DOWN/....) { }

Labels: -Patch-review Patch-new

Comment 3 by project member address@hidden, Yesterday (17 hours ago)

Patchy the autobot says: Lots of regtest differences.  Example: irregular right 
border for (particularly bar 8 sticks out to the 
right), also programming errors "Adding reverse rod" like in

Labels: -Patch-new Patch-needs_work

Comment 4 by project member milimetr88, Today (15 hours ago)

Macro for(UP_and_DOWN) and 3 similar. 
Replaces do{ ... } while(flip (&d) != DOWN/UP/... with a macro 
for(DOWN_and_UP/UP_and_DOWN/....) { }

Labels: -Patch-needs_work Patch-new

So I do a code review in comment #1 and tell you that the formatting is
wrong, and how.  You resubmit a patch _without_ changing that and set
the status to Patch-new, asking for another review in comment #2.  I
tell you that this patch does not pass the review because of _lots_ of
regtest differences, and tell you examples in comment #3.  Two hours
later, you resubmit a patch in comment #4 that shows the _same_ regtest
differences that I rejected the patch for.

To me, that does not look like you particularly value getting a review.
You have not fixed a single thing I pointed out.  You have not checked
your submission yourself for the problems.

My time (and my computer's time) on this issue has been totally wasted
up to now.

We have a review process for a reason.

Automated changes like that of make problems when merging and
rebasing.  So we usually try to catch stuff like that in advance.  There
is no point in creating more problems when one _knows_ about them

You got the respective messages by personal mail as well unless
something went very wrong.

No, it is blaming you for ignoring feedback and mails sent to you with

Yes, that is the respective instruction.  You get a visual comparison
for the tests that differ significantly.

But even if you don't run "make check" yourself: if I go to the pains of
listing bad files and symptoms in a review, submitting a patch without
checking at least those files means that the time and effort I spent on
the review is worth crap to you.

If your submission was treated like that, you'd be right to complain.
Instead you complain that your patches get tested, evaluated, and
repeated errors reported to you.  This takes work to do, work that
several people have volunteered for, and which nobody except myself has
actually done for several months now.

This is not motivating.  And it does not help if the work gets ignored
and one gets called a bugbear for it, to boot.
