   I'm afraid it is. But I would welcome a comparison.

   I think it'll be much easier to discuss whether this is a useful list
if we also provide a transition diagram between these states. IOW,
I think we should start from a model we, as a team, would like to
have in place in order to make our work with externally logged bugs
easier. E.g. when the bug gets logged and is assigned a newBug state
what is the next step ? Do we have an initial evaluators for all of the
bugs, etc.
