Ah. By less data you didn't mean less issues/bugs but less qualified
data fields. Hmm. At least I agree if that means less *required* fields.
And the current collector isn't very bad in that, I agree too.

The topic could probably go away, and maybe we could also remove some of
the options from the classification.

(I bet that "issue", "feature", "bug", "bug+solution" would be enough,
maybe "feature+solution" but I don't like the "+solution" very much.)

I'm sorry to bore you with that, but I didn't notice that we had a
definite outcome of the last discussion. This also goes into what
Martijn said the last time:


I'd be happy using launchpad too. The last link points to a discussion
that didn't have any decision in the end. I wouldn't go as far as
abandoning the old collector data.

They have an XMLRPC API available for filing bugs, maybe they have a
simple import mechanism to get our existing data over.

(Ok, so these last sentences might spur two discussions: again the
collector issue which we didn't resolve the last time. The second issue:
a central place for decisions to look up.)

I meant to say that I wanted to remove the 'core' label from that
specific bug to make it stay out of my query for the things we need to
tackle for a 3.3.1.

PS: I'll start using the importance '3.3 release'  as a 'whatever next
release in the 3.3 branch is to happen'-marker.
