Why is putting tickets in "to be determined" better than assigning
them to 1.36.0 until such time as we decide to do something else with
them? I don't like limbo.

What does that mean? No bugs should be labelled as "must be fixed for
the release of 1.35?" How will we track our progress towards 1.35

I don't understand what connection the area of the repository has with
the milestone.

You're suggesting having all open tickets in "To be determined," and
only assinging milestones after they're closed? That doesn't seem
like a very good use of the technology.
