This was discussed a while back on meego-dev (I think). The problem is
that many of the bug reports refer to internal Nokia applications. If
the bug report is e.g. "WhizBang crashes when using
meegotouch-applauncherd", the WhizBang developer would need to create a
publishable test case where the bug manifests itself, which may already
involve a fair amount of investigation. In other words, ain't gonna
happen without quite a bit of external pressure.
One of the underlying problems is that us Nokia folks are not treated as
proper upstream. There is an expectation that as we do internal
releasing we should alos keep our components in the MeeGo stack up to
date. However, when we try to update the MeeGo packaging, there is a lot
of huffing and puffing about missing BMC numbers.
If it was up to me, I would immediately stop trying to work in push
mode. If there are no open bugs at BMC for us, then clearly MeeGo stack
users are happy with what they have.
