It did, this bug isn't fixed, since my patch never made it in.

I last had a spate of wine submissions when i had a month or so off work. I'm
back at work more than full time now and can't afford the time to massage the
patch to get through. I tried to implement tests for this function to get it in
and encountered all sorts of unrelated issues in testing that would have taken
me far too long to uncover, so i dropped it, hoping that someone might pick it
up. A bunch of other patches got ignored at the same time so I decided to enjoy
my holiday rather than struggle to get the changes in. It didn't help that the
bug was marked fixed when it clearly wasn't. It seemed like the 1.0 series
brought out a focus on ticking boxes without focusing on the actual user
I'm happy if you want to pick up my patch and go with it, its still
serviceable. The error handling just needs to be fixed according to the last
feedback I got, and you could implement overlapped IO but its not needed to
make docuwiki work.
Its a shame I think that the barrier for entry for submissions has been raised
so high now. I can understand it for existing functionality, but for
unimplemented functions a kaizen approach would be better. Checking in the
original patch with a FIXME for the error handling would have benefited users
more. Someone else could easily have fixed just that issue with the code in
tree, rather than letting it bitrot.
I still have patches from 8 years ago that never made it in, and more from a
couple of years ago too. But for someone like me with very limited time, the
hassle of maintaining a tree full of changes just isn't worth it when there
isn't clear feedback on what needs to be done to get patches in, or lots of
extra work is demanded before stuff will be accepted. I'll try again when I get
more time, but that could be 5 years away at this point. In the future I've
thought I might just contribute tests, since they should be easier to get in.
Anyway, the same goes for any patch I've ever sent that didn't make it in. I'm
happy for anyone to rework/resubmit them, just please give credit + shared
copyright if enough of the original work remains to warrant it. I'm happy to
answer any questions about old patches too.
