Oh - I see! You didn't write that in the comments so I assumed.

Sorry! :\

It depends.. If our goal is to really have doxygen throughout, I
think a ticket makes good sense as long as there is some code without
doxygen - even though it is written in guidelines.

If we are more lax about wanting doxygen I agree that closing the
ticket as invalid makes sense. A comment at the same time as status
change could probably help clear up some confusion in that case.

Similarly, I think debug output clarity is an important issue, at the
very least before the "Going mainstream" milestone.

I'd like to reopen 85, but there's no point if it will get closed
again, so I'm hoping you see my point. :)

Thanks for clarification and good discussion!
