So, resurrecting this thread zombie one last time:

As discussed in the past few weeks' meetings, we went ahead and
implemented option 2) initially. However, Matej pointed out a problem
with that; it made it impossible to search Bugzilla for all triaged or
un-triaged bugs in a given component across all releases. So, to solve
this, we made a change. All Fedora 10-12 bugs in ASSIGNED status have
had the Triaged keyword added. From now on, when triaging bugs in Fedora
11 and 12, please _both_ set the ASSIGNED status _and_ add the Triaged
keyword when the bug is triaged. For Rawhide (and, later, Fedora 13
onwards) bugs, please _only_ add the Triaged keyword, do not change the
status of the bug.

When searching for bugs, use the Triaged keyword in your searches if you
want to search for triaged or un-triaged bugs. This way, it should
always give accurate results.
