The poster of the "known issue"  will be aware when the bug is solved . After 
all the bug was bugging him/her. we could assign a resp[onsability there.

We could also make a rule that when a new version is rolled out all issues of 
the previous version are deleted 

e.g  when 2008.9 is due 2008.8 issues are deleted. Sounds crude, but the new 
version has to be tested on them anyhow. 

when my FR arrives (Christian why so long ?? ) i will definitly check the 
issues and follow up on those distros which fancy me 

Kind regards
