    1 hesselink, the jQuery project is very happy to have contributions from the community.  The reply you received was not automated, but rather the result of a recent, concerted effort to deal with the glut of backlogged tickets on the bug tracker, Part of that effort includes having standards for what the people handling ticket triage will and will not handle, and that entails having a test case of the behaviour.  Just because this patch was not accepted does not mean your contributions, in general, are unwelcome.  It is rather indicative of the simple fact that just because something works for a particular user in a particular application, that does not mean it is necessarily an appropriate fix to be landed in the library that will be distributed to all users, everywhere.

    33Yes, we could have rejected the ticket out of hand just because it had anything to do with mutation events, but with a solid test case, at least we have something to refer back to in the future.  And we know that it is problematic that there are backlogged bugs, like this one - but dealing with them now is better than leaving them completely ignored. No one was leading you on, and there is a big difference between "not wanting your contribution" and "not adding support for this particular issue."
