How can my boss take rails seriously with bugs like this?

I kind of like Chronic for this:

http://chronic.rubyforge.org/

It was demonstrated at RubyConf and totally rocked.

I liked chronic so much that I added support for it in the ruby-units
gem.

Now you can do things like...

'3 weeks'.from 'today'

Well, I posted about that a month ago, and nobody seemed to care...

The patch for the defect, http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/6483, was
applied to Edge within 2 hours.

I find this attitude quite disturbing actually. In fact, Rails just
doesn't care about everything that is not-US.

As far as I am aware most US states use DST, so this defect affected US
as well.

For example, the validation error messages can be translated, but not
the "There was 3 errors trying to validate..."

The application I am currently working on happily displays "Der blev
fundet 3 problemer i din indtastning". This stuff is easy to modify
(hint: Noone is forcing you to use the (very basic) builtin helper).

Sorry to have to jump in here, but I made a patch back in July for this:
http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/5617

I've updated it to fix the problem correctly and broken out the test that show the continued problem with next_week as "fixed" by ticket 6483.

I only hope that this ticket with its renewed attention gets swift attention, too.
