Oh, I don't think Greg (or anyone) was accusing you of poor attitude,
don't worry. He's just describing a state of affairs.

One useful thing would be: if you feel there's a Right Way to fix
something, but you only had the time or domain knowledge to contribute
a workaround, then after the workaround is committed you can file an
issue describing the more desirable fix. At least then we could keep
track of this stuff, and have a reference point for someone who does
have the time/skills to solve the problem.
