I have found a bug in Asp.Net (won't detail it here, it'll go in an SO question depending on the community response here) and want to share it; as well as hopefully get it in front of the framework team.
I've used MS Connect with reasonable success in the past (and will probably push it there if subsequently the community can reproduce), but that doesn't necessarily help the community that much as connect bugs don't often appear in search engine results (not SEO friendly I think!).
So I figured that SO would be a good platform to peer-review the bug before taking the time to report to MS, as well as to put it front of other developers who might come across the same problem - since SO has v.good SEO (argh so many acronyms!).
This question is also valid for other platforms, of course, it's just that .Net is 'my' platform in this case.
Is this a valid use of SO - or should I go straight to the source? Does it depend on whether the platform in question has an established forum for such things? Where do you draw the line? Third-party or open-source frameworks? Does it depend on ubiquity - i.e. how widely it's used?
Thanks in advance.
