I thought about this too and didn't it in my reply but perhaps that
using a "mini"-milestone (aka inch-pebble ;-) works.

So far, all the milestones for the sane-backends were tied to releases
but we could use milestones to organize multi-issue, focussed efforts to
get something done.  The milestone page will show how many issues and
merge requests are tied to it (and how many are open, closed and, in the
case of MRs, merged) as well as a percentage progress bar.

# If you decide to use an inch-pebble, please stay clear versions for
# their name please.

Feel free to ask (after 1.0.29 is out ;-)
