Agreed, I didn't mean to place blame on the stage field, I just ran with how
I view that field since it was mentioned. When I'm thinking in "code-writing
developer mode" (tm), I'm more likely to go to issues which have a stage so
I know what I'm going into -- what needs to be worked on. When I'm in
project cleanup mode, I go by stageless issues -- what is necessary for this
to begin or end work. Maybe others work differently...software projects take
all kinds :-)

Anyways, sorry for the off-topic. If this is a summit worthy discussion,
