0003350: Cartilage never decays
I noticed my butchery refuse stock pile ends up full of hair & cartilage after a while as they have no use. Cartilage should rot after some time but [MATERIAL_TEMPLATE:CARTILAGE_TEMPLATE] in material_template_default.txt is missing the [ROTS] tag so this never happens.
Start Fortress mode.
Define an indoor refuse pile which accepts only animal parts.
Butcher/Slaughter some animals either from tame livestock or hunting.
Simple fix, add [ROTS] to [MATERIAL_TEMPLATE:CARTILAGE_TEMPLATE] in material_template_default.txt
material, Probable Quick Fix, raw file, rotting

From a quick look at the raws this is still missing in 0.31.16.

I changed the raws both in the main directory and in the saves directory. Nothing happened to the cartilage, though. How long does "ROTS" take? Years?
