(A) Martin said, which I think sets the list of versions (and also means it
is a single value, not a set):

(B) and he said:

and suggestions were made about how to deal with blockers. So to sum up what
Martin and others have said, they do not use priorities except for this
pre-release period.
 Here is another idea for this then: don't have a priority but do have a
check box or yes/no (probably visible, or at least writeable, by Developers)
that says something like 'Needed for next release if at all possible'. Then
a simple search will find all such issues that are still open, etc.

C. Question: did someone say we should have this platform thing? Since a
platform-dependent bug is probably less frequent than one that is not, we at
least have to make platform-independent the default.

Since the text of the complaint should contain this information, it seems
redundant and messy to me, especially since we can't possibly deal with all
the new platforms that will arise. (Solaris on an X-Box 380).

> The rest of the plan is good with me. BTW I'm still having trouble posting
to the draft tracker.
