Yesterday we had a blog post on planetkde about issues with Plasma 5. There is one aspect which I want to pick out:
The bugs are so obvious that I’m sure they are all reported.
Don’t ever do that. If you think they are obvious that implies that also the devs see them. If the bugs are embarrassing to look at (like in this blog post mentioned not updating digital clock) you can be quite certain that the devs haven’t seen them. We use the system as well and come on if the clock doesn’t update we would notice. This implies now that the “obvious” bugs are not “obvious”. The devs are not seeing them.
Thus report them! Even those which are so clear to see that you ask yourself what the KDE devs have done to release software in that quality. Report your bugs, all of them. They are not obvious.
