AFAIK with roundup theres no restriction on the state, you can have a
single state variable or several

btw, a small question to the roundup gurus, could we simply add a
"confirmed" integer so that every time someone else confirms
a given state (bug is really fixed, ...) she increases it and if the state
changes then it gets reset
this would avoid the state bloat we would end up if we add a *_confirmed
and it would avoid making the system unintuitiv due to spliting the state
its also more generic as it doesnt arbitrarily limit the confirm/verify thing
to 0 or 1

btw2, is anyone working on setting up roundup on mphq for testing?

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
