Summary: Include data status whiteboard was last updated as a buglist column → Include date status whiteboard was last updated as a buglist column
I like the concept but this is kind of heading down a slippery slope...  before
long we'll want this on every column, and probably who made the last change to
that column, too.  Then again, that's probably not a bad idea, but it'd need a
really creative UI...

Well....  in principle, we could let the user optionally edit the COLUMNLIST
cookie in a text box.   If we change its format to something that can be split
unambiguously (csv?), then we can continue to expand the format.

fieldname - what we have now
fieldname/t - the time fieldname was changed
fieldname/w - who changed fieldname
fieldname/"%24s" - specifying the width
fieldname/t"%Y:%m" - specify a format for the field
\n - start a new table row

If a user used the basic interface and set a columnlist, then switched to the
advanced, the list would just be a list of fielnames.

If a user user the advanced edit and then switched to the basic view, we would
want to have a warning that changing the list would cause loss of information.

We are freezing the code for 3.0 in two weeks and we don't expect this bug to be fixed on time.

Yeah, I agree, this is a slippery slope. If we can generalize this requirement somehow (that is, say "people want to know about when X changed"), and there is sufficient visible demand for that generalized feature, then perhaps we can consider some form of generic implementation. But I think adding it just for one field is too much complexity without enough value, at this point.
