Many open source projects use Bugzilla to manage their bug killing efforts.

I suspect that not all projects that use Bugzilla use the same status progression.

In an effort to test that hypothesis, I am starting to collect some of the progressions as I run across them, see the Status Progression Table.




Status Progression Table

This table shows how various projects label the status of bugs as they progress towards resolution:

  Bugzilla Status
Condition AbiWord Next Project
Initial bug report UNCONFIRMED  
Confirmed by someone else NEW  
Developer accepts bug ASSIGNED  
Solved and pending verification RESOLVED  
Solution verified VERIFIED  
Bug report rejected CLOSED1  


1. From AbiWord: The status "CLOSED" is reserved for use by core developers to describe a bug that, for whatever reason, does not belong in Bugzilla.

Aside: I'm not sure the AbiWord progression is the most intuitively obvious progression. On the other hand, if most projects that use Bugzilla (or similar tools) follow a similar progression, I guess we might as well standardize on it.
