It’s very easy to find developers that have found some kind of bug in third party code. Whether it’s in an external lib, or in Apple’s SDK. Our code, beautiful and sparkly, with undesired behavior caused by people that aren’t even in our company. At the same time, it isn’t hard finding devs that have reported some of these bugs to those responsible by the code, or that have contributed in any way to its resolution. But, it’s not so easy to find developers that have reported some kind of inconsistency to Apple.
The lack of material on bugreport, may it be motivational or guidelines, emphasize this fact. Frequent are the reports without relevant information, with confidential data, or identical copies of previous reports without addition of any new data.
