1- Bug reports that explicitly manage to tell you how to reproduce the bug are a definite plus.
2- A list of bug "tests" are an absolute necessity for regression testing. Especially if the tests can be scripted!
3- According to Sapience, someone is "in charge" of Luas, not laid off. (I think that was a question asked in one of the Isengard runs.) I don't believe he stated "who."
4- Can we get the Dev interested -- probably -- but it seems that Devs who communicate with players "disappear."
5- Our "new/old" Executive Producer has indicated that he will likely do a monthly letter to the players. That might mean a change in policy about communications, I don't know.
6- It's a good idea, and worth a try.
