This is fairly trivial, but I'm thinking we'd help things by
separating those issues that simply "need to be done as a part of
every release" vs. actual issues targeted at a specific release.  I
see two ways to help:

a) Add a new version with, instead of a "-dev" extension, have "-rel"
suffix.  Then, we agree that the workflow is:
  a1) "x-dev" issues to zero
  a2) code freeze
  a3) "x-rel" issues to zero
  a4) release


b) We add these "need to be done as a part of every release" issues to
a new "Release" component so that they might be easily filtered out.

Anyway, trivial, but I think the separation is helpful to reviewing
"real" issues vs those that simply need to be done before release.
