(But, again, irrelevant.)
From http://www.NetBSD.org/, there is an interface to browse GNATS.
in particular, one option is to browse by the years in which PR's
E.g., the oldest year listed, 1993, lists 1 unresolved PR (see
http://www.NetBSD.org/Gnats/year/1993.html to see this one entry,
When you get there, however, you find that the entry is lib/15025,
submitted in December of 2001.
This isn't restricted to 1993. 1994 has at least one at least as late as
July 25th, 2002.
I hope that this isn't indicative of a corrupt PR database. (Or, if
the database is corrupted, that it is not irreversible.) I seem to recall
that this feature worked properly in the past.
Try browsing the GNATS PR database via the web, selected by year.
Or specifically, look at:
"Don't do that," I guess. It's not *that* important to browse the
PR's by year (perhaps the main purpose is just to see what are the oldest
PR's---but you can find that out by glancing at the 10 oldest reports,
which presumably is a correct list.)
