I would like to fix this bug, which appears to be current and not have anybody working on it:
I have taken a look at the relevant code in the ODE package (it touches a few files), and I think the solution will be straightforward enough. Part of the process will involve clearing out some related code that effectively does nothing, and making a couple implementation decisions which I think only have one obvious right answer.
I have a few questions as I get started:
- Any reason I shouldn’t work on this?
- Should I start an explicit discussion of what code I am removing and why, and/or of what relevant implementation decisions I want to make (and why)? If so, where should I post those discussions?
- Where should I submit my changes, and in what format? That is not clear to me from the bug tracker page. I will create an account there shortly and post this message as well.
