I am totally confused by the statement
I thought that xcore was the proper place to discuss ideas and problems on XMOS devices, the original xmoslinkers site having been shut down.For future reference we'd prefer technical questions about XMOS technology to be posted on our support forum which you can find here: http://www.xmos.com/discuss/.
From the XMOS support board page
When did this support facility start? What is the difference between it and xcore? When xcore was started I seem to remember that there was a XMOS statement that XMOS people would monitor and respond to questions - which they certainly do very faithfully.The goal of the XMOS Support Board is to answer technical support questions through open, user-driven discussions. All posts to this board are subject to editorial review by XMOS. XMOS is actively contributing to the Support Board by answering questions in good faith.
Where does the bug reporting system fall in all this? I have a bug report (1479) that I thought was still unresolved but in just looking a moment ago at the ticket I found that the problem had been resolved/closed on May 18. Should not the originator of the problem be informed?
Another point - why are bug reports private between XMOS and the originator? Shouldn't we be able to look at any report in case it might impact on something we were doing?
