Description Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2007-08-17 22:34:03 UTC
Description of problem:
while trying to close BUG253282 which I originally submitted as
Resolution=NOTABUG, I keep getting an error that says :

You tried to change the Status field from NEW to CLOSED, but only the owner or
submitter of the bug, or a autorized user, may change that field

changing the owner to my email account works, but doesn't work either.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log as a generic, not priviledged user
2. create a bug
3. try to close it
Actual results:
"not allowed" message

Expected results:
bug gets closed

Unfortunately process/policy dictates that for certain bug reports (mostly RHEL

please add comment to the report asking that a bug be closed if it is invalid or
