The Mysterious case of the detached item in the TP

I have been monitoring (granted without much understanding but with avid interest) the postings on Firestorm JIRA FIRE-15507, which is the home of much of the kerfuffle about BUG-6925 and BUG-7761 away from the censorious approach of Linden Lab.

It is beginning to look as though the issues not solved by BigBird code in the viewer are as much related to whether or not an attachment is scripted as to whether more than one items are attached at any one point. This is NOT specifically an RLV/RLVa issue and will impact non-RLV users as much as folk like myself. As such it ought to get LL’s attention a bit more readily, since we have been long told that LL couldn’t give a **** about RLV, since most of them regard RLV as a rather quirky hack.

It is not THAT long since LL introduced the multiple attachment code, in response to Emerald’s rather ugly “hack” of secondary attachments. I wonder if we are about to take several steps backward in that regard?

I do not see much progress yet on BUG-7761, but if hard work can reap rewards, Whirly Fizzle’s orchestration of testing of both FS test-builds and LL RC viewers should see some progress. We owe Whirly a big debt of gratitude as we also do to the brave testers who have been TPing about SL in demented fashion checking for attachments falling off and not re-attaching.

I am watching that (FIRE-15507) space closely!
