Description of problem:
Under Preferences->permissions, I see that I have the 'canconfirm' bit
set. I cannot, however, confirm bugs.
Steps to Reproduce:
Go to Preferences->Permissions.
Try to confirm a NEW bug.
The option to do so isn't ever available.
I can only change my own bugs.
this is expected behaviour. The canconfirm permission is a left over
from the upstream bugzilla source which initially puts new bugs in a
UNCONFIRMED state. People with the canconfirm perm can put bugs from
UNCONFIRMED to NEW. We instead put them staight into a NEW state.
After that only people with editbugs perms or the reporter can edit
the report (minus adding a comment or adding self to cc list). I have
removed the canconfirm permission to avoid confusion since this is the
first time the topic has come up.
