That was not working well for 4.1 which peaked at 64 unresolved issues. I have decided to unassign all issues for version 4.1 and readded the truly important ones. We are back at 4 which is much more reasonable.
Let's make sure we don't have to hit the big reset button in the future which should not happen if we follow the rules above.

While I'm not 100% inlined with their rule, I am sympathetic to the idea of a managed flow of JIRA issues. I'm not sure how this can be applied to (or at least get closer with) search, validator and ogm but I'm open to ideas.
