How to get your PHP bug fixed!. Many PHP bugs never get fixed because it's too hard to duplicate the problem. For example, its been known since 1999 that file uploads of large files are slow but no one has really tracked the reason why. Look how Marcel van Leeuwen gets Andi Gutmans (one of the top PHP developers) to fix the problem…
I've tried a ASP uploader and it does the same file in less then three
minutes. PHP was working for 30 minutes and still wasn't done.
I think this is a bug in the code.
You've got to get their competitive juices flowing by mentioning that Perl or ASP does it better!
