    That would be the obvious way, but that option is not presented to me :)
    Look at ;-)

    Tangent: Red Hat's bugzilla has a 'NEEDINFO' status which is quite
    useful too.

    I'm willing to wait and see how things settle out in a few weeks. I
    doubt it will be a huge problem for me personally, but as we see on the
    mailing lists already, there are plenty of bogus net stack bug reports
    [I know, I posted one just today and got corrected by Alexey]. I forsee
    David having a much bigger problem with potential bugzilla-related grunt

    If you think back to what I first proposed, the original idea was to
    minimize the grunt work on kernel developers so we could focus on
    solving the tough problems :) As I said back then, that definitely
    implies some useful help from staff and community to keep the bug
    database clean. I think Andi Kleen mentioned that Mozilla project has
    bugs begin life as pre-screened... I think that's a pretty good model.
    Since you pointed out that Bugzilla supports that model from a technical
    standpoint, all we need are the pre-screeners to help us out... :)
