what's with the "rdar" urls?

  • Why do people post URLs like <rdar://1231234> in messages to cocoa-dev?
      I thought regular folks didn't have access to other folks' bug
    reports.  Is it just for the benefit of Apple employees who might be
    reading the list?

  • It IS just for the benefit of Apple employees--IMHO the most important
    people to be looking into bugs :)

    As far as I know, there's no "public" bug lists that anyone can access.
      However, it is also helpful if you know this # and can reference it in
    your bug (either to add "weight" to it, or just be helpful in pointing
    out a link or potential link to your issue.
