Reporting Bugs Even when you Know they’ll be Closed


Frustrated by Magento? Then you’ll love Commerce Bug, the must have debugging extension for anyone using Magento. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned pro, Commerce Bug will save you and your team hours everyday. Grab a copy and start working with Magento instead of against it.

Updated for Magento 2! No Frills Magento Layout is the only Magento front end book you'll ever need. Get your copy today!

I just had a nice reminder that sometimes reporting a bug to a public software forum can matter, even if you suspect/know it’ll be closed out.

Someone familiar with the Symfony docs process ran across the same problem I had with the HttpClient, and appears to have had the same “what is even happening reaction I had”, but they found the issue I’d opened explaining it, and it doing the work to get this strange behavior documented.

Maybe this would have still happened if I hadn’t opened the issue, but it probably would have taken Benoit longer to get there. Also, I wouldn’t have learned (or been reminded? — middle age is a heck of a thing.) the Symfony docs are PR-able.
