[webkit-dev] Removing keywords from resolved bugs

I think that in many cases ("Regression" and "HasReduction" being  
two) it doesn't make much sense for resolved bugs to carry keywords  
("Regression" from what?).

That said, I had intended to only remove the "Regression" keyword to  
clean up the "known regressions list", and mistakenly removed all of  

I'm not sure what the "official" policy on keywords-attached-to- 
resolved bugs is.  My impression was that we generally removed them  
after resolution.  Perhaps it's something which needs to be discussed  
more generally?  Do you have a suggested policy?

I'm not currently on #webkit (not feeling particularly well), but  
would be happy to discuss this with you or others at a later time.
