Request: Issue Triage Cleanup

From: Paul Burba <ptburba_at_gmail.com>

One of the regular tasks in preparation for a new release is review
all outstanding issues that may block the release, e.g. "Issue triage
-- Review open issues for the 1.8.0, 1.8-consider, and 1.7.x,
milestones." Obviously when somebody marks an issue with milestone of
1.8.0 this indicates the issue should be addressed before we release.

This is all well and good, but what about the large number of issues
that simply have no target milestone? I don't mean milestones of
'unscheduled', 'nonblocking', of 'blue-sky', but those with the
default of '---'? While the bulk of these are unlikely to be blockers
for the next release, we really have no way of knowing. Currently 228
of the 728 open issues in our tracker have target milestones of '---'.

My request is this: In the lead up to branching 1.8 please try to find
some time to review any issues you've filed (or are assigned to you)
that have the '---' milestone and set an appropriate new milestone.

This can be done easily via http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/query.cgi

E.g. http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/buglist.cgi?component=subversion&issue_status=NEW&issue_status=STARTED&issue_status=REOPENED&target_milestone=---&email1=cmpilato&emailtype1=exact&emailassigned_to1=1&emailreporter1=1&email2=&emailtype2=exact&emailreporter2=1&issueidtype=include&issue_id=&changedin=&votes=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&short_desc=&short_desc_type=fulltext&long_desc=&long_desc_type=fulltext&issue_file_loc=&issue_file_loc_type=fulltext&status_whiteboard=&status_whiteboard_type=fulltext&keywords=&keywords_type=anytokens&field0-0-0=noop&type0-0-0=noop&value0-0-0=&cmdtype=doit&newqueryname=&order=Reuse+same+sort+as+last+time&Submit+query=Submit+query

This isn't intended merely as an exercise in OCD, but rather a
reasonable step to ensure no regressions slip between the cracks.

Thanks all,
