I normally set the 'target milestone' to the version which will contain the fix.
Recently, all bugs prior to 2.0 were either closed or moved. For actual bugs, I like to see the original version. If a bug is reported in version X and stable version Y has a fix, the bug will be reported against X and someone who scans the list and knows that version Y contains a fix can recognize that fact. For enhancements, however, is it useful to know what version the request was reported against? Personally, I don't think so. If someone wants a new feature in version X, and stable version Y still doesn't have that feature, I don't think the added info that it was requested against version X is of any use. I would prefer to see enhancements changed (regardless of how they are reported) to be against SVN. I've started using the bugzilla 'browse' (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/browse.cgi?product=GnuCash). If I want to fix some old bugs, this tells me where to start (2.0.5).

Subject: Version field in Bugzilla
There's a version field in bugzilla that can be used to set a GnuCash version.
When reporting bugs, I have always set this to the version that has the
But now I also start closing bugs, I wonder if I have to change this field
when closing a bug. Should it be set to the version in which the problem was
fixed ? Or keep it on the version in which the problem was reported ?
