We've been using Trac for around 14 years and have amassed several hundred milestones. Is there a good way to manage these so the various dropdowns aren't freakishly long? I know the open milestones sort to the top, but that still isn't ideal.

Deleting the milestone certainly works, but we lose the ability to see which tickets where in what milestone with that approach. Also not great.

Changing the control from a pure dropdown to an editable combobox would be great, or an Archived state that prevented the dropdowns from populating those milestones.

I'm guessing the answer here is going to be "Good idea -- write a plugin!" with a strong dash of "It sounds like you aren't using milestones correctly..." but I'm hoping someone else might have already addressed this.

Thanks!

The closed milestones won't be shown in the ticket view provided you don't have TICKET_ADMIN. I think, or is it MILESTONE_ADMIN?

Yeah, the proposed archive feature may be useful or milestones as well:

Discussed a little bit here:
