    No that's just sloppy coding. Patches are to fix things, not break more things. So it seems the definition you have (or even me) is wrong all the way around.

    By your definition there would only ever be one patch, to fix the base game and then no development needed ever again. Programming is a difficult science, it's hard not to break thinks.

    As someone with a degree in software development, I can tell you that you know nothing about actual programming.
