Description Stephen Rasku 2000-12-13 06:47:13 UTC
On the bug status documentation page, it doesn't document the CLOSED
status.  It should, as a minimum, explain who can close a bug (i.e. can an
external reporter close a bug) and under what circumstances you should
close a bug.

For mozilla, someone may resolve a bug I reported.  I then download the
latest version and test whether the bug has really been fixed.  If it has
been fixed, I mark it VERIFIED.  RH doesn't have a VERIFIED status. Is the
CLOSED status an equivalent?

Comment 1 David Lawrence 2000-12-13 15:29:19 UTC
Okay, I have added a description to the bug_status.cgi page to explain the
nature of the CLOSED status a little better. This is status has been debated
within Red Hat for some time now and is actually rarely used. I may end up doing
away with it entirely but until that time I have put a description of what it
could be used for on the help page.
