Perhaps instead of deleting, move all issues to a "to be tested"
category, and the 2008.9 category starts with a clean slate.
Here's a proposal: categorize all known issues per release i.e. move all
current issues to a 2008.8 sub-category, then when 2008.9 is released
intentionally start a new _empty_ sub-category. As users test 2008.9,
issues that are still present (hopefully none :-) can simply be copied,
and new issues (hopefully none :-) added.
For comparison, we can keep known issues for both the present and the
previous release, but delete those earlier.
This seems like a pretty easy solution for us to implement right away.
An exception is 2007.2, which we have to keep around for as long as
FreeRunner is shipped with it. Anyway, that's a different distro.
