@ArielLeslie Thusfar every bug I've found (three of them with the correct code failing to complete a challenge) has already been reported and had the issue closed before a fix was deployed.
I think there might be some misunderstanding either on my part, or on the repo moderators part about the proper handling of issues. To my mind you never close an issue until it's confirmed fixed in your deployed code. It seems, to me at least, that there's some overzealous bug report closing going on .... you don't close bug reports you plan to fix, you close them once the fix is implemented and confirmed. Otherwise, you run the risk of forgetting about issues and never fixing them, or not catching the fact that your fix didn't work because there's no open ticket to refer to letting you know the fix still needs QA.
