This has been discussed at length before. I believe the initial
reluctance was changing the set process for a handful of people that
wanted to do things differently and then trying to keep track of that.
One major reason for not changing the state definitions was that the
Fedora usage of the bug states was the same as RHEL.
At one time I thought the "keyword" approach was a good idea and it
still seems to make a lot of good sense... I can't remember why we
didn't move forward with it, but as you explain, it seems like a good
I think it feels like a bigger change than it is. In fact, I think the
case may well be the same for RHEL; RHEL seems to use ASSIGNED in the
same way Fedora does (i.e. it's abused to mean 'Triaged').
That makes it a bit double-edged - it's not a big change to make, but
it's also not a big deal not to change...
