Hello everybody,

I thought about my initial proposal again and must say I wasn't too
happy with the use of tags either, I still think though that it's
vitally important to not lose bugs that have proposed solutions in the
mediocrity of the huge list of bugs (all bugs marked as medium, all bugs
marked as new).

I'd like to make use of three list in my new proposal: would be the
general lists of bugs with patches.

Can we agree on using "Incomplete" in this case?
then would be the list of bugs with patches that still need work.

If we add an upstream task, we could make use of
that are forwarded upstream and still need upstream input and
the patches that were forwarded upstream and the upstream bugs that have
been resolved.

I repeat: untagging the "patch flag" is easier, but we lose information
that is very important if we don't want to lose possible solutions in
the 40k bugs we have open anyway.

Let me know what you think.

Have a nice day,
