(oh, what the heck)


I'd have to agree, I'm just as puzzled by this one as you.  From my
point of view, re-defining the ASSIGNED state to mean CONFIRMED (and
taking the well defined ASSIGNED state away from developers) is
nothing short of new-speak, and, in my opinion, more likely to confuse
everyone; especially anyone familiar with bugzilla from other
projects, or even familiar with this same bugzilla but from the Red
Hat prospective (or perhaps that also changed while I wasn't looking

Looking at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/docs/en/html/lifecycle.html as
best I can tell the bugzilla-way is to just start things out in the
UNCONFIRMED state instead (it's a shame the state wasn't called
CONFIRMED, but what ever).

however, I guess all this was considered; learn something every day :-)
