Without getting into unnecessary semantics with dictionary definitions etc. how 
does this 'status' differ, so to speak, from an issue that is simply marked as 
an 'enhancement' and has the 'Status' field either blank or set to 'accepted'.

After all, I suspect that 'many' enhancements (if not all) on our tracker list 
could be classed as "... impractical to implement at present due to lack of 

You may also recall a long conversation we all had back in 2015.

Where I was trying to establish a process for the Patch Meister (i.e. me) to 
comb through all opened/abandoned trackers and reset statuses accordingly but 
of course, good intentions and all that, I never did get around to it. N.B It 
would create a lot of noise for people for those subscribed to one or more of 
dev, bug and auto lists.

I did however find a patch that I was working on at the time, but that I never 
published for review, to update the CG section on the patch process; but as 
always I let it get to big and then and then and then and then ... so it sits 
here 'shelved' as it were on my own PC.

Perhaps now is a good moment to revisit all this section again?
