Andreas Kupries has fun with SourceForge. He presents accepted practice for clearing bugs in such hosted projects as Tcl http://deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=694889570 and also illustrates that there's far more going on with our beloved-but-poorly-marketed Tcl than any one person begins to know http://deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=695272928
