Re: [opensuse-project] bugs that are against 11.1

Hmm... I just now realized that the original thread this was on got
hijacked. Someone took an email from the existing Freight Train thread
and simply replied to it and changed the subject line.

This causes problems for those of us who are using threading in our
email clients. I did not realize that this thread was actually a new
thread nested inside an old thread.

For future proper usage, if you want to start a new thread (or
sub-thread in this case), please create it from scratch. Simply
replying and changing a subject line retains the thread ID within the
headers and throws everything out of whack. If you feel you need to
display text from an original thread to make the new thread relevant,
simply copy that text into the newly-created message.

For example, bugs that are against 11.1 probably aren't going to get
addressed (or may already have been, or may no longer be relevant), so
they should be closed as "WONTFIX".

It would be better to assign them back to the reporter, informing him
that the bug will not be fixed for 11.1, and asking if he has seen the
bug in the latest release (12.1). IMO, _just_ closing as "WONTFIX"
does not encourage more bug reporting.

However, I think our bug-handling/processing is long overdue for review,
the above is merely one of the items on the agenda.
