This is why diversity is good. People are free to write as many plugins as
they want of whatever level of quality and as long as we as a community

then the bad ones can be weeded out. The problem is, to my knowledge no
LADSPA or LV2 plugin has ever been weeded out! We're doing fine at
producing new ones.

The topic of the thread was about reporting bugs. What should a

For normal audio processing (EQ, dynamics, effects,...) that is
true. If you count 'instrument' plugins as well things could look
different. But why should those be plugins in the first place.Yes, sorry, I was referring only to processing plug=
