CTools acknowledges bug, fix time is enterprise-quality

CTools acknowledged that the system will send out blank notification emails, a situation apparently important enough to warrant the global message quoted below. Interesting to note is estimated time-to-fix, "a few weeks," a wait long enough to make any software developer wince. Ctools is notorious for moving slowly, but this is somewhat ridiculous.

Instructors: Blank Resource Notification Bug

Please note that a bug was introduced with the last release of CTools that causes blank Notifications to be sent from the Resources tool. Students still receive the email notification, but there is no content in the body of the email message. As a workaround to this issue we recommend using the Announcements tool when you'd like your students to know that a new Resource is avaiable. We apologize for the inconvenience and expect to have the bug fixed with the next release of CTools in a few weeks.
