Just had to log into the core bug tracker to remove myself from a bug I submitted in 2014. There's movement on it now, and it only took 4 years 9 months!

These comically long delays are why I don't bother with contributing to ...

@jba it's potentially worse when dealing with open source enterprise software. A nameless one I submitted a bug report to about 3 years ago was closed saying it was fixed in an internal corporate version. And they spent about a year after that before they actually rolled the changes to the public branch. I still get emails about it every few months because it was a super hacky fix.
