Recent question: Suspected-bug Tag motivated me to elaborate on an idea I had in mind for some time now. It appeared to be not close enough for linked topic so I'm posting it as a separate one:
It is too limited in my opinion because:
I'd like to review the state of unfixed bugs when a new MMA version is released. It is tough to filter out 'fixed' bugs as this keyword can appear anywhere in a body e.g. "why isn't it fixed since 2010?!"
I would like to skip bugs related to 3rd party packages, on the other hand they deserve the bugs and Paclet version information
adding fixed and other new tags will pollute the system and occupy 2 out of 5 tag spots.
Documentation bugs using two tags is justified but at the end it should also be solved with whatever solution we choose.
if we commit to special tokens we need them to cope with search engine well. easily searchable and not interfere with similar words.
I think there should be only one tag: bugs and I'm going to suggest what can be done in separate answers to get feedback from community.
