Milestone status sorting puts invalid bugs first

Bug #172952 reported by Martin Pool on 2007-11-30
4
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself
Low
Unassigned

Bug Description

On this page https://edge.launchpad.net/bzr/+milestone/1.0alpha1

when sorted by status, Invalid bugs come first. I think this is wrong; bugs that have been definitively closed as invalid or wontfix are less important than bugs that are still open or in progress.

(follows on from bug 62495, but different)

It's really not very easy to fix this (i.e. we'd need to change the status ID and then update the bugtask status accordingly, in one go) and I see this as being a really mild inconvenience if you can click twice on the header and get the sort order you want. Are you sure this is worth investing time into?

I agree it's only a mild problem and not a priority. Normally there
are so few invalid bugs it doesn't matter, and if there were I could
untarget them; or do an advanced search for only open bugs on this
milestone.

But clicking twice does not give me what I want:

  ascending order is: invalid, active, fixed
  descending order is: fixed, active, invalid

Reproduced on <https://launchpad.net/launchpad/+milestone/1.1.12>, where clicking on Status gives New, Wontfix, Confirmed, Triaged, In Progress, Fix Committed, Fix Released. The position of Wontfix is wrong.

Changed in malone:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Confirmed
