1. Where is ownership of bugs with Resolution "RAWHIDE"? To community members
at-large, such as myself, if it's not fixed in the next-released-iso (Test
3?), then it's still OPEN.
2. Relating somewhat to #1, the duplication, on my part, is due to the default
Bugzilla search of NEW, ASSIGNED, REOPENED, MODIFIED.
The flawed logic there causes time lost by developers closing duplicates,
*and* by testers opening them.
CLOSED->RAWHIDE means we have committed a fix to anaconda CVS and that this fix
will be picked up in the next build of the package. We won't have new images
made between test releases, so I can see how you might view the bug as still
open. However since there is a committed fix that will be built, we view it as
If you think the bugzilla search is lacking or confusing, please file a bug
against the bugzilla component.

Chris, the correct state in this case is to leave it open, or perhaps change it
to modified. CLOSED->RAWHIDE should be reserved for when the fix is *already*
in rawhide. Otherwise, you have to cope with dupes even from people who did the
homework and searched for open bugs.
