Hi, I've seen a lot of [status-bydesign] tags here, but when I read the question it appears that they are unfixable bugs.
Some of these features have obviously not been designed, just following badly written third party API's etc.
I propose that a different tag such as [wont-fix] or [unable-tofix] should be used in conjunction with the [status-bydesign] tag.
To be honest it comes across badly to see status by design when its obviously not by design. Won't fix though more direct feels more honest.
EDIT: What are other peoples feeling on this? Could a discussion be held?
EDIT 2: To try to better explain my position. Won't Fix is a standard resolution in most bug tracking systems I use.
By design implies just that. That there's no problem move along. I'm not saying every status-bydesign should be a won't fix but there are certainly a number of them, which are recognised as minor problems. The existing tag used to close these implies that there is no problem
