Agree with Bruce, LOW priority is self-explanatory and can be deferred until more people users are affected….

Maybe marking such bugs as Low priority is enough?

If a new bug comes in that isn’t important, mark it Low and maybe someday someone will fix it.  If someone files a Low bug and then asks about it later, it must not be Low anymore so raise the priority and tag it for a release.

Hello all,
In StarlingX, we currently use labels for target releases for Features/Enhancements as well as bugs [0]:
Example: stx.2018.10 (October Release), stx.2019.03 (March Release).

For low priority bugs or enhancements which may not have a target release, I was thinking to use a specific tag to indicate that they do not gate any release – stx.ng or stx.notgating. This would help with the screening/prioritization process. Right now, we leave them blank (w/o a release tag), but it’s harder to tell if they have been reviewed or not. I like the idea of having an explicit release better.

Any thoughts or concerns?
