The accept bug option assigns the bug to the package owner rather than the
person using bugzilla.
Looking through the bugzilla code this should not be happening. If check the
Accept box it merely changes the status of the bug to assigned leaving the
assigment at whatever it is. Now if you check the Assign bug box it will assign
it to whomever the name is in the text field.
Yes, accept bug leaves the assignment at what it is (i.e. the package owner).
Rather than setting it to the person who clicked 'accept bug'.
So you are saying that proper behaviour would be that if someone 'Accepts' the
bug that should mean they take ownership of the bug? Normally accepting around
the qa department has been considered the same as VERIFIED which means that the
owner will know that it has been confirmed in a test environment.
