David, I think your desire is different from what Conner and Metsuro want. What you appear to have asked for is more of a detailed bug tracker module.
No, not really. I just want a mention on each bug report of which version the fix relates to, preferably in the subject line. For instance, instead of:
"[Bug] Chess games don't clean up properly when one player quits"
you would have:
"[Bug] Chess games don't clean up properly when one player quits (>=1.8)"
It would be basically what you already do from now on except you type seven more characters.
For a post to be tagged as "Fixed in 1.8" would just add an extra bit of info that's not necessary.
Perhaps not necessary, yes, but useful, as I and others have suggested. And again, it is at the cost of seven characters. Clearly you wouldn't find it useful for yourself, but I believe four people now have said they'd like it... I'm just not sure why you object to the seven characters so much. And no, I'm not trying to be demeaning or anything, I just really am a little mystified.
You also mentioned preservation of history. This isn't an archive site. Part of the problem I see in the MUD community these days is a pathological need to keep things that are 15 years old lying around in some crusty old ftp site somewhere just because it once existed.
I don't buy your argument. You already keep a record of bug fixes. It costs seven characters to add the version tag. It's not as if I'm suggesting the creation of some massive Bug Encyclopedia with a detailed entry for each report along with an opinion commentary of the historical context of the time...
All I mean by trace is that when you look at bug reports, you don't have to fishing back and forth between the upload page (which as I pointed out isn't necessarily reliable anyhow) looking for dates. It would suffice to look at the subject tag.
