Following Petteri's thread last month about RESOLVED LATER and given a
issue that has been reported to User Relations about the "ab"use of the
VERIFIED status in Bugzilla, I'd like to get some feedback from fellow
We have a user that has been marking resolved bugs as verified following
his actions on other bugzilla(s) and he quotes the Bugzilla Docs to
explain his actions. Some developers have become upset because of the
"spam" email that action causes.
It seems to me the reason those developers got upset is that they don't
value the VERIFIED status so I wonder if anyone uses that status or if
we should just drop it. If possible and useful, would we like to
restrict the VERIFIED status change to a specific group of people?
Please share your thoughts on this so we can decide how to act on this case.
