Interesting data on this topic:
lazr.restfulclient had 3 fix committed bugs.
All were actually released, just stale metadata.
~All the milestones in the project were still active so choosing a
milestone was -hard-.

I've dug up the right releases, associated the bugs appropriate, and
marked all the milestones except 0.14.0 (which is unreleased) as
'inactive' so they don't show up in pick-lists anymore.
