Anything that they don't intend to fix should be clearly documented as broken.

comment Background color does not display in InputField unless Appearance option is also specified
it may not have been listed here before because it is not seen as a major issue.

That has always been the case on OS X AFAIK. Probably a bug bug not a major issue.

comment Mathematica can't export $\sqrt{}$
Confirm it works in 9 but not in 10.0.2 (OS X 10.10.1). Incidentally if you want to use boxes in your labels it might be easier to do this {DisplayForm@SqrtBox["x"], DisplayForm@SqrtBox["y"]}. Related: mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/69242/…

comment Ratio of variables AxesLabel is messed up when plot exported to pdf
I get the same with 10.0.2. Also when rewriting as DisplayForm@FractionBox["a", "b", Beveled -> False]. Ditto with Beveled->True. It looks like a bug

comment Can't type in notebook in version 10
I've noticed this a couple of times and figured it was another bug. I've also had V10 just refuse to work for me due to a non existent license id problem.

comment FRED api reports all data in given month with same date
It is nearly 5 years since I wrote that function but as described in the abstract on the download page it is intended as a "How To" to enable you to write your own function(s). The example uses only monthly data. You will have to make the relevant adjustments to the code to include weekly data.

comment Save as pdf broken in version 10.0.2?
back at my computer now and I must be going crazy. Save As and Copy As give the same result as above. However Print As, then save to PDF, works fine. Maybe that was what I did but I don't remember doing it that way!

comment More Ticks::ticks errors in AbsoluteOptions in v10
AbsoluteOptions is such a useful tool it is a shame that it has been error/bug ridden for so many versions.

comment Printing Mathematica Code that isn't cut off
I'm on my phone so someone will follow up with the exact option but it sounds like you need to set the page wrapping to page width. You can set this from the menu or manually set it and then add to a stylesheet

@ChenStatsYu by default the alignment is to the centre. You have specified non default alignments.

comment How to SpanFromLeft when there is Alignment?
@SjoerdC.deVries I get the same and if I change to Alignment -> {{Right, Left, Right}} then I see AAAAA move to the right of the table/grid. Works as expected (V9, OS X).

comment Basic stylesheet customization of “Text” cells not working for me
As an alternative to using ShowExpression and manually typing new options you can click on the cell bracket and set the style data via the options inspector.
