When it comes to status, I believe "unknown" is better than  
"outdated" which is better than "wrong".

Keeping track of status is a good thing. Status tracking should go  
into one system (you can get away with two, where one is schedule- 
related backward-looking and the other is non-schedule-related  
forward-looking, which we have with (1) wiki and (2) jira). We  
weren't maintaining the third.

I feel that, even if this file were *kept* updated, it would only  
have value if at least one of the other two would go away, since  
otherwise it is just duplicating things.

Empirically, we have found that we don't update this STATUS file  
enough to be useful. I believe that is because we keep the status  
elsewhere (wiki and jira).
