Huh? I'm a GNOME developer, I also (sometimes) work on gnome-bluetooth,
and gnome-phone-manager. I don't see where you're seeing scapegoats.

The context menu is to send a file to a mobile via bluetooth. If I can't
test it, I can't really do the changes properly.

We know what needs to be changed for it to work, that's not the problem.
The problem is that neither Edd nor I have done yet because of 1) time,
2) being able to test it (in my case).
If you have a patch, and you have tested the patch, we'll be more than
happy to commit it.

It uses obex to send files via bluetooth, if my mobile doesn't support
it, I can't test it. You mailed me personally (in error) asking for the
context menu to be ported. I didn't think I could port it, because I'm
not sure my mobile phone supports obex properly.
