The best bug reports are pull requests

I just got the following bug report, I’ll just let you read it, and I have additional commentary below:


The great fun with getting a pull request with a failing test is that the whole process of working with this is pretty seamless.

For the one above, GitHub told me that I need to run the following command:

git pull https://github.com/benjamingram/ravendb.git DynamicFieldsBug

I did, and got the failing test, from there it was just a matter of fixing the actual bug, which was rather simple, and nothing that even smelled like ceremony.

I much prefer a cryptic email that doesn't really describe the problem very well, includes no examples or source code, but instead just contains an accusation that the bug is holding up their development.
