Comment 1 David Lawrence 2006-10-20 21:16:17 UTC
This is a policy of bugs summitted against RHEL products only in Bugzilla in
that only redhat.com users can change a bugs status. This was a request by
management at the time and unfortunately causes some extra overhead and
frustration in certain circumstances. We normally just ask that people request a
change as a comment and normally the bug owner will perform the request such as
closing the bug. 

Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
