Basically I was just asking in general what to do with the existing JIRA
which is documented on a previous NetBeans release.  More specifically,
"resolve" or "close"?

By April of 2019 will anyone care about the JIRA bug documented against
NetBeans 9?  I will be thinking to myself.. should I resolve or close this
or wait...  It may still be a problem on a different environment.
Who decides what is resolved and when?

To me, it seems like the issue should be resolved or closed against the
same code base used when the bug was filed.
Since I don't keep up with the DEV side of NetBeans, maybe I should be, I
don't know what has changed that would give me a passing test case in
10.0-vc1 (which would help me to know what to do with the JIRA).

Ultimately, I don't want to document issues and then hope someone else
figures them out.

Maybe this is more of a JIRA topic that can be discussed and recorded for
those of us who are in different time zones?  Or put some NetCAT JIRA
guidelines on the wiki?
