what does the project status control?

Post by dingfelder »

on the page http://www.mantisbt.org/manual/manual.p ... s.page.php

It seems that the public/private flag determines if the project shows up in the pulldown list, but what does the project "status" (development/release/stable/obsolete) control?

so why is it there?

If it is not used for anything, it just adds needless complexity to the defect entry page, and people always are going to conmplain about wanting to make defect entry as simple as possible.

I vote it should be removed (or at least hidden) if it is not needed/used.

The project status is not part of the defect entry page. This is just an indication of the maturity of the project, something like the license (e.g. GPL). I am not sure if we are talking about the same thing.

sorry, I was confusing myself.
thinking of too many things at once when I made the post,
and I mentally merged a defect status and a project status :twisted:

Is there a way to hide/disable it? It is not needed in our use case scenario

Not out of the box, simply ignore it.
