since this email two more important regressions (in 2.18 since 2.14)
have been found and reported:

* "hidden" widget is broken
* maptips with expression to show local images is broken

"just" shut them down no, we can send a mail and say that they will be
shut down. Moving is something that many have already done (for
instance I was forced because someone had deleted a repo of mine on
Redmine, but I dind't made any fuss about it). Making the
platform/redmine update/upgrade and leaving the mess that there is now
it would be really a pity.

see my previous email. If no one cares (not even the users), why keep
them open? they can serve well as reference even closed, and if they
are really important bugs they will be naturally reopened.

One way or the other a decision must be taken.
