The problem is really the RESOLVED connotation and the hiding that goes along with that on searches, etc. The LATER status itself can be useful when used properly (more as "ASSIGNED LATER"). In the lack of that some bigger teams might need to think of other methods to get things meant for LATER out of main views of huge bug lists. In my case, I want to have a "gnome" saved search that shows all OPEN (non-LATER) bugs directly assigned to gnome, and another saved search that shows those where gnome@ is merely in CC, or anything marked as LATER. Though that might not be achievable, so three saved searches really. More useful might be a date field upon which it will simply automatically re-open. Maybe something one is unable to set more than 30 or so days into the future. -- Mart Raudsepp Gentoo Developer Mail: leio@g.o Weblog: http://blogs.gentoo.org/leio
