It just turned out that at least parts of that template seem to be outdated.
(3) You decide the [% terms.bug %] belongs to you, but you can't solve it
this moment. Accept the [% terms.bug %] by setting the status to
[% display_value("bug_status", "IN_PROGRESS") %].
That was actually meant for when we had the ASSIGNED status for which it would
make more sense.
Again: Don't take it too serious, if it helps to remind you that's fine but
ignore anything else.
