Bugs and Fixes (old)

Answers to Exercises - Bug Reporting and Fixing Policy (in theory!)


Submitters, please note:
In an effort to ensure the quality of the solutions posted here, I have introduced the following mechanism for processing bug reports:

  1. On receiving a bug report which appears credible, I will annotate the relevant solution with the bug report, and email the originator of the solution.
  2. If the originator of the solution has either provided a fix (in the form of a complete listing to replace the existing listing) or shown why the bug report is incorrect, within six weeks of being informed of the bug report, then I will update the relevant page accordingly. If not, I reserve the right to remove the solution from the page altogether (but I'll make every reasonable effort to contact the contributor again before taking this step).
