I am requesting other users of Mikrotik to work with me and help create a user-driven bug tracking system. It seems there is a big miss communication and user expectation about how bugs are/should be prioritized. While not every single bug may be fixed in a point-1 version increment, I strongly suggest a bug-prioritization solution, contributed by the users of Mikrotik RouterOS.
Basically, this system would allow users to file bugs on a public space (Wiki / bug-tracker software).
Other users could rank up/down a particular bug.
As users see a bug has been fixed, they would move the bug status from Pending to Fixed (something like that).
Sub-categories like dhcp, interface->wireless, ospf, etc... could be easily selected by a drop down (or created if none exists yet).
It would allow tracking of pending bugs throughout the releases.
It would also allow tracking of introduced bugs in a specific version easily, as everyone often can't upgrade as soon as a new release is available.
If a feature request is submitted, it would be moved to the Feature Requests Wiki page.
This would be totally user-driven, meaning we all would monitor each other, watching for duplicate bugs and such.
I submitted a request about /user active status to show "via api" when users connected using the API service. This was fixed in v4.7 (thank you Mikrotik). However, I would have liked to see more serious bugs fixed like VirtualAP crashing, (possibly others?). Also, while these forums are a good place for discussion, it's often very difficult to find the current status of a specific RouterOS version in regards to bugs, features, and other oddities. The changelog reported by Mikrotik is great, but helps only for things that get fixed. I'd like to be able to see the current status of all user-submitted bugs. This would help a great deal when configuring something new, or wondering why a specific something isn't working right.
I've requested this before to the community, but haven't heard enough response. This would require some collaborating, and working out the best approach by more than one user. If anyone is interested, please post back here, and I will post further contact instructions. If Mikrotik staff could comment on this, that would be great as well.
This is just my opinion, as I've been using RouterOS for some years now, and think this would help a great deal.
