Hello Serge, Michael,
MR>> Well, we could use the process as intended:
MR>> if you attach a fix, mark the issue resolved and the resolution field to
MR>> fixed. If the fix is in the stream, the issue should be closed.
MR>> If the fix is no good, you can always reopen the issue.
SS> The problem is everyone could post a fix, but not everyone could mark

that would mean only people with deep knowledge can post fixes.
I don't assume to know every use of the class I fix, so I can't think
of every side effect my fix might have for other people.
IMHO a fix should be announced here so interested parties can look at
The model you propose (Mantis was intended for) is fine for a small
team of developers not for a community.
"Reopening the issue as the fix was no good" is not what makes people
contribute fixes. Sorry Michael for turning your words but I think
that's how it will be understood.
It's closer to the "If you want it done right you have to do it
yourself" approach than to a community approach.
