    In a comparable case with another code checker, I opened a bug ticket on their project. Nobody cared (as usually in open source). But I didn't even expect that because I just wanted the bug report ID as reference in my project why the reported issue is a false positive. Done.

    @beegC0de interesting fact - almost every popular project is using this library. React, bootstrap, vue, jekyll, postman, graphql, netlify... You name a project and probably they are using this lib. So I went and checked some of these projects. Every goddamn project has this same bug.

    @Fast-Nop I can relate. I have once raised a bug to Apple which was a blocker for my story. Guess what the status of that ticket is 💁‍♂️

    On a side note from my experience, *some* open source project issues are a lot likely to be looked upon by maintainers/contributors. The eslint bug which I raised was confirmed within an hour or so. The lib bug.. Well it has been 2 days now without any response...
