OK, so you want the already existing:

Except with priorities as well as severities? I can hopefully fix that
in the next 20-30 minutes.

[This would also exclude all enhancements; I hope that won't be a
problem for anyone.]

I'm doing that with new bugs. Doing it with old bugs is... Sisyphean. :/

put aside: 'triaged' keyword, but not GNOME2 keyword. [i.e., probably
GNOME1.4 specific, or fixed in 1.1.x branch.]

must fix for GNOME2: 'GNOME2' keyword + 'triaged' keyword + either
Priority=Immediate/High/Urgent or Severity=Blocker/Immediate.

not must fix: GNOME2+triaged but not of those priorities or severities.
[Lots of enhancements here, for example.]

I can whip up reports for each of these, if you want them, but it might
not happen until later tonight.

right now not looked at is ~1452. :/

'must fix' is ~50 or so; I don't have a great query for this at the
moment, since it would need some booleans.

Keep in mind that these are things 'looked at' by me, personally; jfleck
has marked an additional ~100 bugs as GNOME2 but I haven't tried to
triage those separately yet. I'm going to start looking at those;
possibly tonight but maybe not until Friday.

I have deleted those now; they were intended to provide uniformity but
they didn't appear to be workable for the big projects (naut+gtk.) So
they were ditched, but not deleted, which was dumb and confusing on my

We're not, at the moment. If there is a scheme you want to use or would
be more comfortable with, I can use it, but right now the GNOME2 keyword
combined with priority/severity is the defacto milestone. 

I personally would like to have a good milestone scheme- that's why I
proposed the original one. But I cannot maintain 30+ different milestone
schemes, so once my original proposal was shot down, I switched to
