Re: [Gnash-dev] head in really bad shape

I envision a situation in which on each bug report we'd respond
with "did you try with the head branch" ?

Having an explicit "version" field in the bug tracker would help
(0.7.1/0.7.2/cvs, where cvs assumes that it is the cvs version of the
date of the bug report).

That way, when a new version is released, all previous-release bug
reports can be ignored until they are either reported again in the
current release, or someone goes through the old bugs systematically
testing to see whether each bug still exists in the current release.
If they confirm it, they update the gnash-release tag.
This would avoid the accumulation of bug reports that no one really
knows how to handle - until it's reconfirmed against current release
it can be ignored... then when someone feels at a loose end they can
go through the old bugs and see whether they still exist.

That's also makes for a good reason to make more frequent numbered releases
