Confusing tracker bug naming
 
Currently Blocker bugs are named "F<release><milestone>":
* FXXAlpha
* FXXBeta
* FXXBlocker
To indicate whether something was accepted as a blocker or not the
whiteboard is used: AcceptedBlocker or RejectedBlocker

Nice-to-have bugs are named "F<release><milestone>-accepted":
* FXXAlpha-accepted
* FXXBeta-accepted
* FXX-accepted
To indicate whether something was accepted as a nice-to-have or not
again the whiteboard is used: AcceptedNTH or RejectedNTH.

This is inconsistent and confusing:
1. Blocker bugs for alpha and beta don't have "blocker" in their
name but the final has.
2. Naming the NTH bugs "-accepted" can be easily confused with the
whiteboard status and sounds like an accepted blocker, but not
like only nice-to-have.

Therefor I propose:
* F<release><Milestone>Blocker, that is FXXAlphaBlocker,
FXXBetaBlocker, FXXBlocker.
* F<release><Milestone>NTH, that is FXXAlphaNTH, FXXBetaNTH,
FXXNTH
* Whiteboard remains unchanged.

Questions, feedback, thoughts or rants anybody?

Kind regards,
Christoph

For the list: Robin's proposal is
* 15Alpha, 15Beta and 15Final (or alternatively 15)
* 15AlphaNTH, 15BetaNTH and 15FinalNTH (or alternatively 15NTH)

So we agree that having two different labels for one thing (NTH and
accepted) is confusing and that 'accepted' is even worse because it can
be confused with the whiteboard statuses.

I think just a number (like 15) is not enough. The advantage I see for
my proposal is that the it is consistent not only throughout the names
of the tracker bugs but throughout both bug names and whiteboard
statuses: Blocker in the whiteboard can only exist in a Blocker bug.

But this is only a minor difference that I don't really care about as
long as we get change the current 'accepted' names. :)

Best regards,
Christoph

Yeah, we have several proposals. The good thing is that BZ aliases
aren't exclusive, a bug can have as many as you like. Heck, we could add
all the proposals as aliases to the F18 bugs, even. Whatever floats your
boat. =)

I don't mind doing that, but a (slightly) less radical plan would be to
add all the proposals as aliases to the F19 bugs and see how people like
'em. That wouldn't be too difficult, it'd only take someone maybe an
hour to go and unearth all the proposals and edit the bugs. Anyone want
a ticket to do it?
