RESOLVED WONTFIX begs the question: "why won't you fix it"? Also, some
users would mentally add "are you lazy? do you hate me?" and become
There are a few reasons why a bug would previously have been closed as
- Because the software has been designed this way on purpose, so a
change is undesirable: REVOLVED INTENTIONAL covers this
- Because it is technically impossible to fix: essentially the same
thing; software was designed in that way, so RESOLVED INTENTIONAL is
- Because the developer just doesn't feel like doing the work: not a
valid reason to close a bug; bug should stay open
- Because the developer wishes to spitefully punish the bug reporter for
behaving badly in the ticket, and in the process hurts all KDE users who
could benefit from a better resolution: not a valid reason to close a
bug; bug should stay open
So I think REVOLVED INTENTIONAL covers all of the valid reasons to close
a bug report that the developers will not or cannot fix.
At least, that's what makes sense to me.
