As this is a feature request, and no code has been submitted thus far, I am suspending this issue, per bug tracker policy.  At such time when code has been submitted which implements this request, this issue may be reopened.

Corydon, in bug ASTERISK-11313 you seemed to agree that this is a bug. So did file and oej. Additionally, see comment 0081436; that is under all circumstances a bug. Finally, you yourself wrote in comment 0081443 "I think we can agree that we are proceeding on this with a developer branch, and it will be fixed sometime during the 1.6 release cycle". Yet now you suspend what you yourself said would be fixed.

I don't know why you keep closing bugs on purely formalistic grounds, but I do know this: it has an extremely discouraging effect on people like me who can find and report bugs but can't fix them. The message goes out loud and clear: "don't bother reporting anything unless you also fix it yourself".

Fine. Sorry for bothering you by trying to help. I won't do it again.

I did not agree that it was a bug; I agreed that it was a feature request, and as such, not going to be applied (ever) to 1.4.  There was change in policy preceding the 1.6 release cycle that new features would be welcomed in 1.6, in point releases.

As to the change being in a developer branch, it appears that either that developer branch is inactive or has not been applied yet (it may be the IPv6 developer branch, which is forthcoming, but is not yet merged).  In any case, feature requests are tracked via the voip-info Wiki, not via the bugtracker.

I'm not trying to discourage anyone, but we have had a policy of allowing feature requests to remain open for several days, but if no code is forthcoming directly, then the issue is closed, and people are referred to the Wiki.  We do not track branches on the bugtracker for new features, only for bugs.

Corydon, I wish to terminate my account on this bugtracker, but the system doesn't give me that option. Can you please do it for me?

Sorry for reopening a bug for what is really a bugtracker helpdesk request, but I have no other way of telling you this. When you have terminated my account, you can also delete this comment and re-close the bug.

User deleted per request. This should have been handled via webmaster@digium.com or the #asterisk-bugs IRC channel (for future reference).
