Engineering has determined that your bug report is a duplicate of another issue and will be closed.
This is a message I see quite often these days at http://bugreport.apple.com and it is frustrating for several reasons:
- you submitted a bug for nothing without the possibility to check the database first
- you can't check if it is truly a duplicate
- there is no follow-up on your issue
- you'll never know if they are fixing the bug
I can't believe that these major disadvantages are on purpose.
So: Is it possible to view bugs submitted by others to Apple's bug reporter?
