How does Bugzilla operate

One possible workaround is to place the code at a higher level in the 
project, then allow the code to be inherited by the graphic.

For example, if all such graphics are on the same card, you might 
consider taking the code from your template graphic and using it as the 
script of a group containing your template graphic.  Then when you 
clone the template graphic, Rev should automatically put it into that 
same group, thus it will automatically inherit the script.

As for Bugzilla responses, it seems to vary greatly: sometimes a few 
hours, sometimes a few months, has anyone seen it go into years yet?  I 
haven't been around the Rev community that long, so I can't really say 
on that one.

I have at reports dating back to August which have been more or less 
'confirmed', but have not been fixed, for example.  And even when they 
finally are fixed, the correction generally won't appear until the next 
release of Rev.

OTOH, I made a few reports back in October which were fixed in 
December.  So it does seem to vary quite a bit.
