I'm ok with this.  Let's do it properly:

0. figure out if this is intended behaviour and why - Shanjit, please
   include this information in a pre- or post- patch email next time
   so we don't have to waste time and you can demonstrate you know
   what you're changing.

1. bug report - Shanjit, please do this like [1] and include the
   information from 0.  Please remove
   as a) the page doesn't tell me any information from point 0 above;
   b) the page doesn't tell me who requested it; c) requires much less
   discussion than a "feature"; d) is much smaller in scope (code
   changes, UI effects, difficulty to revert) than a "feature"; and e)
   has no relation to a "feature"
   as we usually use the term.

2. ...that includes which deployment, why, and HIG changes - Shanjit,
   please do this like [2]

3. test cases - Shanjit, please do this like [3]

4. run pylint / pep08 /tools on patch - Shanjit, please do this as in [1]

Shanjit, please read

next time.
