I've already spent time changing incorrectly set target milestones, and
I can change them again if need be. We don't have to make the tools force
us to behave; we can use peer pressure (after all, all of us with CVS
write access could do whatever we want, and we don't).
I don't think we need to ask Daniel to do anything here. All we need is
for the folks with Bugzilla write access to understand the rule.
In any case, for every rule there's an exception: what if we discover,
after the release, that some open bug was actually fixed in 3.3.1? Why
*not* set the target milestone to 3.3.1 and add it to the list of fixed
My goal here is to get to the point where I can do the release notes with
one Bugzilla query. Dream on, of course; I still have to distinguish bugs
that arose during development and never appeared in any release, as well
as do a sanity check, but if I can at least get a superset, that will save
a lot of work.
