Ah really? Wait, I am not following you. 

First you tell me that I should have tagged an invalid bug as fixed in
some version, whilst it's not a bug and therefore it couldn't have been
fixed for which reason it was closed without a tag.

Then you are telling me that the bug is not visible on mc's bug page,
but you might happen to know about archived bugs, right? So what did I
do wrong in your opinion again?

So how come this file got in there in the first place?

mc never creates it unless you do this manually or explicitly tell it to
change the bindings in which case it copies the default bindings and
lets you edit them in mcedit.

-2 is an (ongoing) experiment by Denis, so either you follow the
solution in #580109 or roll back to -1.
