Best way to check status of bug report fixes?

Does Bricsys have a preferred way for users to check the actual status of fixes for bugs that they have reported? 

Three months after a report is submitted I think, "They must really be busy."  At six months when the bug status is still showing "Fix scheduled" I start to wonder if the report somehow got lost in the system.  At 12 months with no feedback and no fix I start to feel like I'm dealing with Autodesk rather than Bricsys.  I've had a couple of reports in for over 15 months that are still not addressed and that cause significant problems in my office when we go between Autocad and Bricscad.  If I knew that the bugs would never be fixed I would write code to work around them, but with a "fix scheduled" status that does not change I don't know what to do -- if I spend a day writing a work-around but a bug fix comes out next week I've wasted my time writing the work-around.

I think Bricscad is an outstanding product and Bricsys is far more responsive than Autodesk, but you reach a point where you start to feel ignored.  I don't think that that is really the case -- I think it is far more likely that there is more than enough work for your programmers and things that are deemed minor just don't get priority -- but with the current bug reporting system there are no regular status updates and there is no way to know if a bug will ever actually be fixed or not. 

I'll get off my soap box now....

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
