Re-Categorizing Bugs

Since FogBUGZ 2.0 did not support separating bugs, features and inquiries, we have a fair amount of really vague requests, "possible bugs", etc in our database that are currently categorized as "bugs".

Since we are planning to upgrade to 3.0, I was wondering if it is possible to re-categorize these types of things as either features or inquiries after our old database is upgraded...

Yes, but obviously its going to be a manual process.  You have to look at each one and decide if it needs changing...

I can imaging doing this in our 2500+ bug list... Ouch! :)

No problem.  Changing them manually is all I was hoping for.  I'm not sure how it could be automated anyway - seems like one of those situations where computers just aren't smart enough yet.

Luckily for me, we are a very small team, so I've only got to go through at most 85 cases or so.

Thanks!

.. and thanks to Alexandre's own idea, there's a "next" button in the top right of each bug so scrolling through them all is easy!
