There are about 10 or more (minor to critical) bugs associated with the 
group object, which have cost me plenty of time and a huge amount of 
frustation to get to the details of these bugs and eventually to find 
out workarounds if possible. These bugs seem to be totally outside the 
scope and interest of the RunRev team.
My bug report  8275 of Sept. 16, 2009, "Groups: Bugs and features ("last 
group" broken)?", which listed 5 of these group bugs, is stiil shown as 
"unconfirned" as of today - nearly 11 months later!

If they should indeed have looked at the report and cannot replicate the 
bugs, I would at least expect an organized attempt to communicate with 
the bug reporter, maybe asking him for more information or a sample 
stack etc.etc..
  As an active supporter and user of Revolution since its beginnings I 
am of course aware of the difficulties and the multitude of tasks the 
Rev team has to address with limited personal resources. But I think 
there is an urgent need to re-organize  the handling of bug reports and 
the management of the so-called "Quality Control Center". To completely 
disregard valuable feedback from motivated users is not the way to keep 
up or build trust for Revolution and its developers.
