And to ensure we can list issues that have really been resolved,
add a "Duplicate" label.
## Status
Each open issue must have one of these labels:
- "1. To do" (previously: "Confirmed")
- "2. Doing" ("In progress" was too vague: it could mean anything
between "someone did the first 2% of the work 5 years ago" to "this is
what I'm focused on today")
- "3. To review" (previously "Ready for QA")
… except issues that were just created and need to be triaged by Help
Desk (previously: "New").
This lends itself to issue boards with 4 columns: "1. To do", "2.
Doing", "3. To review", and "Closed".
Closing an issue means one of:
- The fix or feature the issue is about was merged and will be in
a future release (previously: "Fix committed" for the next release,
"Resolved" for 4.0).
To list these issues: closed issues whose milestone is a version
was not released yet.
- The fix or feature the issue is about is already available to
our users (previously: "Resolved").
To list these issues: closed issues whose milestone is a version
that's been released already.
- We've rejected it or marked it as a duplicate (previously:
"Rejected" and "Duplicate")
To list these issues: closed issues with respectively the "Rejected"
or "Duplicate" label.
Most closed issues will still have the "3. To review" label.
That should not cause any problem in practice. Worst case this can be
fixed automatically, either via a webhook or a scheduled batch job.

- One can set multiple labels so we could perhaps merge "Category"
and "Affected Tool". For example, a ticket about Thunderbird
persistence could have the two "C: email" and "C: persistence" labels.
- Status: use a set of labels, each with a numerical prefix, because
it's an ordered flow:
- "0. Needs triage" (ideally, have it set automatically on newly
created issues; probably requires a webhook; otherwise, can be
done in batch regularly on all issues that have no status label
- "1. Backlog" ("Confirmed")
- "2. Working on it" (clearer than the too vague "In progress")
- "3. To review" (previously "Ready for QA")
- "4. To release" (i.e. closed issue but code not released yet,
to replace "Fix committed" which is too often misunderstood)

We don't support booting on a custom built kernel, so that should be

* The kernel won't allow loading an unsigned `aufs` module so we need
to migrate to `overlayfs` ([[!tails_ticket 8415]]).
