So today I have read about a 100 LATER marked bug reports and I do think we need the LATER
resolution, but I would suggest to limit it's use case to only those bugs were an
external constituent, either the Wikipedia community or a third-party software developer,
needs to take an action and *then* we need to actually follow up on that. So this would,
IMHO, exclude the following type of bug reports:
1) We do not currently have enough resources (is not a good reason to label it LATER)
2) A bug that is dependent on another bug (is not a good reason to label it LATER)
3) Bug reports that only dependent on upstream but do not require any action after it has
been fixed should not be labeled LATER
I am not sure how to handle bug reports that require a major architectural overhaul, not a
big fan of LATER but not quite sure if there is a better alternative.

We've begun using Milestones in Bugzilla for this. One of the
milestones is "Mysterious Future". I think you should feel free to use
that instead of LATER.
I love this, and am promptly stealing it for my own.
