digitalmars.D.bugs - Bug reports missing keywords

I've based this search on the premise that every bug report, or at least 
every compiler bug (as opposed to enhancement request or library or 
documentation bug) should have at least one of the available keywords, and 
usually it should be one of

accepts-invalid
diagnostic
ice-on-invalid-code
ice-on-valid-code
link-failure
rejects-valid
wrong-code

while also allowing for a few others.  As I write, the search returns 186 
issues.

Some of the people not putting keywords in certainly ought to know better.

To all of you, please:
- remember to add keywords when filing bug reports
- look through issues you've filed to see if you've forgotten to add 
keywords to any

As long as there are lots of bugs that don't have the keywords they should 
have, any attempts to search for issues with a certain characteristic are 
going to miss some, and statistics are going to be distorted.
