In that case, it's probably reasonable to remove the "easy" tag ;-)

That's a good policy.  I remember doing so some years ago.  Of course,
if some "easy" issue you care about hasn't been fixed for 6 months,
perhaps you can fix it yourself after all.

Also, if some such issues are still unfixed at the eve of a release,
better fix them yourself too.
