It takes two to tango. People might invest a little more effort in their radar reports if Apple ever gave you some feedback on the progress on fixing the damn thing other than closed (huh? why?), or duplicate.

Yeah, I started my career as a tester at Apple, so I formed strong opinions about how bugs should be reported, from a very young age. After I became an engineer, I tried to keep my QA sensibilities when writing Radar bugs. I like to think that I can still get all the important information in!

I would go so far as to suggest that every programmer should spend time as a quality engineer in order to properly understand this aspect of “the craft.”

Most Radars written by other Apple engineers aren’t this good, and the external ones are mostly “I wouldn’t have designed it this way” or “my reverse engineering tells me you are screwing up the way you do X” — when the code actually doesn’t do X at all. Oh and there’s also the popular bug report that just says “It doesn’t work.”

Agreed. :) Heck, even I should get some coin from Apple for all the Safari bug reports I’ve filed, complete with example pages that isolate and demonstrate the bug.
