Jim has commit access and does provide patches to improve the framework. This thread is about the ironruby tags though, and it would not help anyone other than IronRuby.

If you're adding value to the RubySpec tests, the rubyspec guys are pretty good about giving commit access... spread the wealth!

I added a few comments to critical_tags.txt like this:

fails("need to track which thread owns critical lock"):Thread.critical defers exit

This will help the next person who tries to fix the bug, and also as just documentation. However, I realized that Jim regenerates the tag files whenever he pulls down new RubySpec tests. So such comments will get lost. Jim, is that correct? If so, I will just not add such comments until we change the process so that the tags are not periodically regenerated from scratch.
