I noticed after today's release of 1.2.6 that John closed all the issues
fixed in it, which is great.
But what about all the other "Resolved" issues that remain in this state
(some for more than 1 year) either because they
- were resolved in an older release (31 issues matching)
- do not have any "fixed in version" information, e.g. because the
resolution is no change required/unable to reproduce/won't fix or it was
fixed at some point without updating the issue (510 issues)
In an ideal case, Resolved/Duplicate issues (158) should be treated
differently, as I think they should only be closed when the "main" issue
itself is closed. But unless there's an easy way of identifying that
(don't think there is), it's probably not worth the trouble; a
compromise would be to close those which have last been updated X months
ago. Unless we don't care and close them whenever the next version is
I believe the above should be closed too, and this should become part of
the "new release" process.
What do you think ?
