I would like to propose taking this one step further, and standardizing the header of bug-posts. This will serve the purpose of making it easier to search for bugs based on status or version, both for regular site users and for Wolfram.
I suggest keeping to the following rules:
- the information should be added as the very first line
- if and only if the bug is fixed in the latest version, it should contain the word
Notice that it also extracts the header line when it detects the word
fixed. It would be even better if it could also detect headers without this word based on some other cue word.
I am awaiting for proposals for an easy-to-copy standardized header. We should not be so naive as to expect that everyone will rigidly keep to this template (which is why I only suggested the two simple rules above as strictly necessary), but having a template to refer users to will make things work more smoothly.
