Is not really WONTFIX, nor FIXED, nor WORKSFORME... and do you really
it marked as an open bug when it won't be implemented at all for ages
until browsers actually have feature support that would make it possible
Sounds like a bad way to make our list of open bugs grow in a needless
and cloud up real bug reports we can and want to fix, with bug reports
that won't be fixable for quite awhile due to external sources.
The reason WONTFIX, FIXED and WORKSFORME don't make sense is because
that isn't a bug, it's an enhancement request. Perhaps the solution is
to not include enhancements in the list of bugs by default. It's
natural that enhancement requests will sometimes sit around for ages
before they get implemented, that doesn't mean we should mark them as
resolved when they aren't.
No. We have plenty of enhancement requests that don't fit into WONTFIX,
FIXED, WORKSFORME, or LATER. And we don't want to make those disappear,
those are valid bugs to keep open.
The reason why WONTFIX, FIXED, and WORKSFORME doesn't fit that bug is
because it's dependent on external systems implementing functionality in
order for us to be able to implement the feature. Hence, LATER when they
