My point was definitely not to play games with you. We like to discuss
about the problems with our mailing list first for example because
someone might know a solution for your problem, and in that case
the whole bug report would be unnecessary. Moreover, my question
was sincere, I can't keep up with all svn mailing lists, the thread
could be lurking somewhere.

Lastly, the most of us is doing voluntary work, using our very own
time without a pay to play, hack and maintain Subversion, and trying
to make it better. So I think it is quite reasonable thing to ask you
to act by our rules, and to not waste our time. People who maintain
issuezilla have found that asking first on mailing lists reduce their
work load and make issuezilla more usable for those who actually
develope SVN, so please honor they wishes.
