I at least didn't know about those (or didn't remember). But the
fact that they exist doesn't mean that we necessarily need to
actually use them unless we choose to.

As far as I know, we have never actually decided to use the
resolutions page at all yet.

Sounds reasonable to me if/when we decide to use it all.

Another "feature" that we are not under any obligation to actually
use just because it exists.

/me begins to suspect that some parts of the Tracker may have
drifted into over-engineering for hypothetical uses that nobody
has actually encountered yet or that most groups in general are
not likely to find useful...
