Exactly: I want to check all the tickets, as we have some of rubbish around, and
sooner or later someone has to deal with it.

Not so long: I started with about 400 tickets, and we're now close to 100.
I also reassigned tickets with no milestone, and from 1.0.3 to 1.6 whenever appropriate.
Of course I can make mistakes, but I guess reading the tickets is a safer way.
I think now main devs have an easier task: just go through the remaining ~100 tickets
 and either:
- close them if inappropriate
- move to 1.6 or 2.0 if too complex to be fixed in the remaining time frame
- fix them if possible.
I believe this approach needs some effort, but will end up in 1.5 being the best
version ever (as it is true for every release, isn't it? :) ).
BTW: what do you think of removing/closing the 1.0.3 milestone?
All the best.
