I can type
feature-request -status-declined -status-bydesign -status-completed on the address line once I'm there, but is there no easier way? Statuses are a special concept and really only apply to things like feature and bugs. And it would be nice to easily switch between statuses when looking at these tags.
- I don't generally want to see declined features, when I'm looking at features to see what's in the wind.
- But if a feature occurs to me, I don't want to pester the developers with a request that they've already said no to as a concept. So being able to see declined features is a good thing here.
(I've recently dealt with a similar thing in one of my projects: general tagging scheme vs. an evolving specialized concept getting dumped into the GTS--which oddly enough was a sort of status. So I can appreciate the evolving case.)
- I have them in my ignore tags.
UPDATE: I edited this whole post based on Jeff Atwood's clarification.
