There are open items with those items set.

    won't fix      4
    duplicate      0
    fixed          3
    invalid        2
    out of date    3
    rejected       2

Some of these may have been closed and reopened at some point.

Is it "Open" issues or "Not Closed" issues?  The later would include
"pending" issues as well.

With 1,328 Open issues, anything that may help move things along would be good.

I was thinking of maybe 4 background colors + grey,

     (Trying to use the existing resolution terms.)

     light grey:
              no resolution yet
              works for me?  (can't reproduce?)

     Positive Progression points:  light green
              works for me?  (working patch/fix available?)
              accepted       (patch accepted)
              fixed          (patch applied)

     Don't close yet:  light yellow
             out of date?      (patch no longer works?)

     ready to close:  light red
             won't fix

With darker color vertical marks for status/resolution change points.

Possibly Here ...


It was pointed out that these are hold-overs for SourceForge's bug tracker,
and redesigning the work flow triage is something that needs to be done.

It refers to ...
