Re: [platform-ui-dev] Bugzilla upgrade ...

... I was going to say something, but didn't.

I don't recomment a keyword for this, adding one is a pretty big deal and they stay around forever.

You can easily put something in the status whiteboard though, you can put anything you like there.

OK. I'm going to move them to won't fix; add 'Migrated' keyword and add the
comment Remy suggested. So if someone feels that its an important bug to
him, let him reopen/file a new one. I'll triage it over. Hope its fine with

I am with Krzysztof on this one. I would also suggest that the comment
says something like "If this bug is still important to you and relevant to the current Eclipse development stream, please state your reasonings and reopen this bug." or something like that. This could help the triaging speed a little bit because bugs that people care about would be reopened->triaged quickly whereas the less important ones (this is open to interpretation of
course, I should say, the ones that people do not seem to care about
anymore/as much) will be taken care of over time via the keyword triaging

We should also keep in mind that some of these will be reopened against
former committers (Tod, Karice, Kim, Nick, MVM, Doug, etc etc).
