Thank you for the recognition, and for all the work that you do.
Back to the subject now. Even if the cost were zero, is it even
advantageous to have all the old bugs? In other words, should we
simply cancel the action request manifested in the launchpad "question"?
I am beginning to think that searching through old bugs is
particularly helpful, and if we need to, we have them in a separate
form for referral purposes.
Jean Pierre, this really should be your decision, since currently you
are the one working these bugs most actively. If the decision is to
NOT import the old bugs, that can be handled by simply closing the
question and stating why. I am happy to close the question if you
want to omit the old bugs. It might be cumbersome digging an
attachment out of the old bug export, and I believe that the import
WILL include these attachments. So this needs to be considered.
I am very minor preference for not doing the import, (even if it were
easy) but will defer to the decisions of those with a stronger opinion
on this subject.
I forgot about feature requests. These are much higher value than old
bugs, and I don't want to offend anyone by having a feature request get
dropped. So I change my position back to doing the import. However if
somebody feels the old bugs should be omitted, then that person could
volunteer to edit the XML file that will be imported and remove the old
bugs, keeping the feature requests.
