Your position may be correct, but:
- - the "Must fix" label does not have meaning in this context - please
remove it from the trac
- - at least critical bugs should be fixed, otherwise what is the meaning
of "critical"?
- - what is the position of the release team about maintaining 0.8? I
imagine most developer will move to the (much more exciting) 0.9 svn,
and bugs in 0.8 may simply stay as such until 0.9 release (hopefully
much faster than the current one, BTW!).
QGIS is already used in a variety of professional environments, and
these are delicate issues, as you can realize.
All the best.
