Re: "Won't Fix" candidates


I share your concerns about the bug tracker but I do not believe there
is any way to delete bug reports.  I have admin privileges to the entire
kicad launchpad website I don't see any option to remove bugs.  I wish I
did have more fine grain control to prevent users from changing bug
status, importance, etc. at will.  These are just a few of the short
comings of launchpad.
