Default BTW question: how expensive is archive/unarchive

Hi there,

There are a bunch of bug reports where a bug was fixed in the stable
branch, and for whatever reason it wasn't obvious to BTS that the bug
was fixed in the development branch as well, so it shows a picture like
this:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/version.cgi?info=1;absolute=0;fixed=e2fsprogs%2F1. 41.12-3;collapse=1;found=e2fsprogs%2F1.41.11-1;package=e2fsprogs

Since it was marked "done", the bug report has been marked archived, so
I can't just send a command:

fixed 588726 e2fsprogs/1.42~WIP-2011-07-02-01

I'd instead have to do this:

unarchive 588726
fixed 588726 e2fsprogs/1.42~WIP-2011-07-02-01
archive 588726

How expensive is this? Is archive/unarchive just a flag to prevent
spam from getting entered into the bug report, or something more?

Also, I found the following in the HowToUseBTS archive:

"Because bug reports can get archived after 28 days if they fulfil
some criteria: usually bugs have to get fixed both in unstable and in
testing to get archived."

So it's a bit annoying that I need to go in and manually mark all of
these bugs as fixed in a historical release --- but given that BTS
thinks that both unstable and testing still have these bugs marked as
unfixed, why were they archived in the first place?

It's mainly just a link/unlink with some indexing afterwards, so it's
reasonably cheap. Go ahead and run it.

If on June 6th, the bug was fixed in unstable and testing, then it
would have been archived, even if the bug later became unfixed in
unstable. Bugs like this should probably automatically become
unarchived, but I haven't sat down and wrote the code to do that.

And as for the reason for archiving, yes, it's principally to prevent
spam, with a side order of keeping default package report views down to
a reasonable size. (One might disagree on the relative priorities of
these, of course ...)
