Due date on Milestones page

Currently the date column on the Milestones page is formatted thus:

February 2009

I don't think this is very good because it both duplicates the info about the month and it confuses those of us who use dd/mm/yy dates (that looks like 2nd October to me, not 10th February).

Can I suggest you give the time remaining as the 'headline', followed by the due date.

8 days
10 February 2009

Time remaining would follow a scheme along the lines of ...

"x days" where x <= 30
"x weeks" where x <= 12

... etc etc

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll take a look with Rick and Justin and see if we can't revise it a little. We kind of have plans to rework the milestones area UI completely, so maybe it's something we might fold into that.

    I also think that if a milestone has passed its date and has been resolved it should not be removed from the milestones dropdown on new tickets. This way we can still add tickets to the closed milestone which will then reopen it. This usually happens when a milestone is met but bugs are found later.
