As I've said before, this is the way that developers prefer to work. I
speak as someone who has worked on a lot of issues similar to the ones
you have described, and someone who intends to continue bug fixing as
time allows. We appreciate your contributions, but it really helps if
you can collaborate with the developers on their preferred platform.

But this is a non-issue, because as you say, tickets are already
filed. Thanks! Now to find some time and resources to fix them  :)
