As for me, RESOLVED/LATER is sth like in v2.0, so maybe I'll waste my time 
to fix it in a future but I don't really bother and I don't see it happening 
tbh so don't bug me anymore.
Unresolved valid issues should stay open, that's my reasoning.

Adding additional bug types to search for by default - ok. Forcing
search on all bugs - that's an overuse.

In fact, myself I frequently search for a particular bug using
the package name only - as users tend to use very many descriptions for
the same issues. If that search returned me hundreds of years-old bugs,
it wouldn't make much of a sense.

We already advise our users to check RESO bugs before filing bugs; and
the advice seems to have trickled down quite well, and users only file
duplicate bugs once before getting the idea. Overall, IMO it has
worked. We only keep a single bug open for the entire GNOME 2.xx so
people don't file dupes for that (we get a lot of dupes for that, but
not specific packages).

 If we
 start doing that, we'll end up with tons of extra bugs on our hands.

That's not the point; as I have explained above; our purpose is to
prevent bug reports for packages that will go in with the major
release from being filed. We usually have a [Tracker] bug open for the
major release anyway; so the choice is either RESO DUPLICATE against
that, or RESO LATER.

We often do the latter to prevent noise on the tracker bug, or if it
hasn't been filed yet, and the user is doing a stupid zero day bump
request (or a development version bump request).

For packages that are not in the gnome set, or gnome external deps
set, we obviously keep the bump request bug open.

Because often there is no reason whatsoever to keep it open. People
want a package to be bumped that we *know* has been released, is in

with GNOME 2.30. I see no reason whatsoever to keep it open. If we

We already have pages that have the status of bumped packages,[1] so

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.

In my opinion: no. WORKSFORME is for a problems that can't be reproduced.
OBSOLETE would be: yes, this bug has been applicable, but situation changed,
ignore it. One of the examples could be stabilization bugs: you have an open
stabilization bug, but new version comes out with important security fix and it
needs to go stable ASAP. You mark the old stabilization bug as OBSOLETE and
continue in the one opened for security issue (as it usually happens).

To summarize: I'm suggesting axing two resolutions (LATER and REMIND) and
introduce OBSOLETE. If OBSOLETE doesn't sound like a good idea I'm ok with not
having it -- removing two resolutions is a nice achievement too :)

I would vote for a LATER KEYWORD instead of a resolution.  Really what
I would want when searching is to know what set of bugs I should be
working on short-term versus bugs I'd consider more like
'project-work'.  LATER is typically stuff that is:
 - too big to do now, but may get covered in some kind of sprint or fixit.
 - blocking on something else (EAPI, upstream revbump, etc.)
 - too hard to do now, but may be easier in the future (kind of like
#2, but possibly unrelated)

The point is I'm looking for a set of bugs that are possible to fix
now; and currently closing some types of bugs as RESOLVED:LATER does
this for me.

 I don't think later is valid resolution. If there's a valid bug it just
 means it's never looked at again. If the bug is not valid then a
 different resolution should be used. So what do you think about
 disabling later?

 You are trying to remove a valid status for a case that has been badly
 managed ??? Speaking for gnome herd, afaik, all bugs marked LATER are
 for the simple reason they will be done later and no other status would
 be fine expect REJECTED maybe, but we don't want to say that to the face
 of the reported like this do we ?

Thats why I think a bugzilla LATER keyword is just as effective; but
people doing bugzie searches would no longer exclude these types of
bugs on accident.
