My issue with keeping the RFEs in the tracker as they are is that it artificially inflates the open issue count. Python does not have over 1,700 open bugs.
An issue does not necessarily mean the same as bug. :)
Is it a bug tracker you have or an issue tracker? If the former, agreed, if the latter then it makes sense to track RFEs in the tracker.
Certainly, but since some issues *are* bugs we might need to refine our analysis somewhat. It would be better to have a bug report which omitted issues of type "rfe". As far as I can see open issues of all other types would be properly classified as bugs.
There there's the Status field. I understand "open" and "closed", but what's the semantic of "pending". Is it awaiting triage, awaiting status assignment, or what?
It's a leftover from SF.net. There it had the feature that pending items were closed automatically after two weeks if no further activity took place.
For the new tracker, we should really decide about a "pending" policy, or implement the feature too.
