I have found a bug report which in my opinion should be part of the "Most Annoying Bugs" (MAB). Bug #45501 - Indenting change when copy & paste in list. I am sure that thousands of users are affected by this MAB.

But how can I flag this bug to the attention of the developers? Only 4 peoples are CC to it as of this writing, one is the original reporter, one is me, one is a QA person and the other, I do not know. Very few eyes looked at it. What is the process to get bug reports into the MAB list?

BTW, I added a video which shows the bug; thus you do not even have to try it yourself to see it.

Write a mail to to discuss, whether this is really a MAB. Or use the IRC channel, see I personally would not rank bug #45501 as MAB and you will need good reasons.

Be aware, that you need to convince or to pay a developer to get it fixed. Otherwise developers work on problems, which satisfy them or for which their employers pay them.

There are always QA representatives in the ESC-meeting. They suggest "Most Pressing Bugs" to the ESC, so that the developers become aware of such bugs.

You can join the phone-call of the ESC. Find details in

The technical part of making a bug a MAB is described on
