RE[2]: Looking Forward to Haiku

OT: can a native speaker tell me what this means, the sentence construct feels weird: "It should be noted that over 800 bugs closed as fixed since R1 Alpha 2." Thanks.

When a bug is closed in a bugtracker it doesn't always mean it is fixed. 800 bugs are closed _and_ fixed.

Thanks (@atriq too). It feels ironic, being a software engineer, to have bugtrackers explained to me :-)

The thing that seemed odd to me is the active voice on "close" with "bugs" as the subject. Instead of "bugs closed as fixed" I would have expected "bugs are closed as fixed". But after a couple of rereadings, it made sense.

No, you're correct. That would have been better english ;)
