: I agree with that it might be better to have no affects version. But 
: having an affects version allows us to mark issues only relevant to the 
: 4.x branch. Otherwise I cannot sort for issues that only affect 4.x, but 
: have not yet a fix version.
: For me it is easy to remove all Affects Version = 4.0 markers, but 
: that’s destructive. If I add a new version (4.pre) and then update all 
: affects versions to this new one, I loose nothing.

I agree with you ... i would suggest using "4x" or "4x_unreleased" as a 
version name for use in the "affects" field anywhere "4.0" is currently 

labels/tags are useful for many things to help organize/categorize 
issues -- but i think a "version" really makes sense for this particular 
type of categorization -- particularly because of how it shows up in list 
views & reports (and how versions "sort")
