Maybe we should consider adding a threshold for reporting issues against non-released versions. In your case, qa, developers, managers, and admins can, but customers should not be able to.
What do you think?

I am sort of miffed that you can't add bugs to a version which is not released in Mantis. To us, released means released to our customer - but most of our bugs come from our own QA people. It would be nice to have "Accepting issues" separate from "Released" for tracking purposes. I was going to create a quick patch to do this, but there's only a couple lines of code changed so I thought someone having to merge the changes would probably take more effort than just making the change.
Does anyone think this is a bad idea?
