Yeah, agreed.  My basic requirements are:

1. Given a bug number, find the pgsql-bugs emails that mention it in
the subject line.  Note that the archives would actually MOSTLY do
this ,but for the stupid month-boundary problem which we seem unable
to fix despite having some of the finest engineers in the world.

2. Associate some kind of status like "OPEN", "FIXED", "NOTABUG",
"WONTFIX", etc. with each such bug via web interface.

I'm not asking for a lot.  In fact, less may be more.  We don't want
to have to do a lot of work to keep something up to date.  But for the
love of pity, there should be some way to get a list of which bugs we
haven't fixed yet.
