The old semantics of ASSIGNED before the triage process was that the
package maintainer looked at the bug, and agreed that he will be (or
already is) working on it.
It would be nice if there's a sign that the package maintainer had a
look at the bug at all, like VIEWED or whatever. Maybe automatically
set. Would give the reporter and triager a better feeling.
