"Fix for" Sort order in lists


I've got a list grouped by "Fix for" - which is useful, except that it seems to be sorting alphabetically by the name of the fix for version rather than by the date that version is due (which is what I'd expect and what I want).

Is this a bug or a feature? (And if the latter can we please have an option to group by Fix for date?)

ooo, you're right, that's just plain wrong :)

Will fix.

Thanks!

On a vaguely related note (and whilst I remember) there appear to be some oddities about entering the dates.

Being British we use DD/MM/YYYY - the "fix for" maintenance form reflects this but I was getting 01-Feb coming up as 02-Jan.

It occurs to me that I don't know exactly how the server is configured (I'm aware of a "gotcha" so I'll endeavour to remember to go look)

We'll fix that one too.

While we're on this Fix For thing, can you also sort the versions in the drop-down list that's used to set the fix-for version in the new bug form?
