How to be an open source gardener
I know it's discouraging, but sometimes, bugs get fixed as an accident of another change, or the feature was removed, or a variety of other things. Leaving it sit open with no movement at all is even _more_ discouraging.

The bug reporter reported a legitimate bug. It lies on you to act on this information. If you ignore the bug and make other random changes to the code, it
is your responsibility to fix the bug - the fact that you made it harder to find the bug by altering the code is entirely your own doing. It does
fall upon the bug reporter to test your code for bugs for every change you make. To demand this, and to
close the bug
when they do not comply, is entirely the
thing to do.
