Sorry about that. I appreciate your efforts on providing patches. I
saw the TreeModelFilter patch land over the weekend, and meant to
comment on it. As you indicated in your comments, it still needs some
work and I needed to spend some time investigating to give you

This one I don't remember seeing, can you attach it to a bug or send it
to me directly.

That's one interpretation. Another is that our team is very small,
taking on an enormous development space, and occasionally we drop the
ball on some patch review. I am certainly not ignoring your patches.
At the moment, I've been focusing on MonoDevelop, my other job on the
mono team. Again, I apologize that your patches haven't gotten the
swift attention they should have.

The number of active contributors to the list is pretty small, and you
are asking some fairly difficult questions. If you are an irc user,
feel free to drop into #monodev on gimpnet at any time and ask
questions. I'm in there 8-10 hours a day on weekdays as user mkestner.
Sometimes bugzilla and mailing lists just sit a while every now and
then. It's certainly not because we don't care about your
I'll comment on your bug reports this afternoon.
