Yes, I understand that this didn't break any behavior in ToT.

My question was somewhat different. If you landed the code that uses ScriptCallback without fixing this mistake, would that have made any existing regression tests break? We just need test coverage for the fix, and hopefully existing tests provide it.

I have been working actively in webkit for a while, I am always in iRC (lca), my name, email and IRC user can be found in http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/WebKit%20Team and I am willing to help, answer, change or whatever is needed. And of course I would reply to any comment in the bug.

I'm sorry if this came across as an attack on you. My goal was to encourage reviewers to ensure that patches have adequate documentation and test coverage, and that's why I chose to bring this up on the list.

In earlier years of the project, we often said that it's the reviewer who is responsible for any problems with a landed patch. But thinking about it, this hasn't been the theme lately, for better or worse.
