The Netscape ADT (Application Development Team) is charged with managing the
delivery of the release of Netscape commercial browsers.

Need keywords added for the m5 branch:
Keyword    Description
adtm5      Use this keyword to nominate bugs for fixing on the Netscape m5 branch
adtm5+     This keyword will replace the adtm5 nomination keyowrd if the
bug has been approved by the Netscape Application Delivery Team
adtm5-     This keyword will replace the adtm5 nomination keyword if the
bug has been rejected by the Netscape Application Delivery team for fixing on
the m5 branch.
fixedm5    Use this keyword when you check in a fix to the m5 branch. QA
will do branch verification of bugs with this keyword by testing the m5
branch and replacing "fixedm5" with "verifiedm5".
verifiedm5  Use this keyword to mark a bug as Verified on the m5 branch.

we have the following keywords as sets:
adt1.0.0*     edt0.9.4*     edt0.9.7*     edt1.0.0*
mozilla0.9.7* mozilla0.9.8* mozilla0.9.9*
nsbeta1*      nsbranch*
nsCatFood*    nsdogfood*
topcrash*     topembed*

*0.9.4        *0.9.7        *0.9.9        *SunBranch

and the following nonsets:
relnote2-3,   relnoteRTM,   mail1-6,      mozilla0.9.5-6

can you suggest a few of the above keywords that we could retire?
ideally you'd suggest keyword sets that belong to netscape adt or its ancestors

Retiring the keywords shouldn't have direct relevance to the request for this
bug report.

I agree with Lisa.  In addition, most of the keywords you suggest are not ADT

nsbranch is the only one I see in your list that is a good candidate for
removal, but it could also be repurposed for part of this request (at the cost
of confusion vs the fixedX and verifiedX keyword standard we've established.)  

I can't even imagine how removing topcrash would be beneficial to anyone who
wants to use this code base for *any* purpose.  

The mail1 thru mail6 keywords can be removed as they are out of service now. 
Looking over the keyword description page, there are very few for which this
question is at all relevant.  Nearly every one of them serve the very useful
purpose of conveying important information about the bug in a standard and
queryable form.  Luckily, keywords are not truly a scarce resource (although
useful information sometimes seems to be :-)

Hey, I'm a month late to the party. I'm not sure how I missed this request but
something went wrong in my bookmark for this catagory. Is this still needed?
There wasn't an m5branch created, right? so all of the plussing and minusing and
fixed/verified, etc keywords are 1.0.1 aren't they?

Luckily the Netscape m5 branch was a short lived one for Beta and we managed to
get Beta out without these set of keywords.  So you can mark this WONTFIX!
