 When a reporter enters a bug, the report automatically starts out in a
 NEW state. The triage team will be primarily looking at bugs in this
 state. From this state, the triage team can either change the status
 to ASSIGNED (which indicates that the bug is well defined and
 triaged), or use the NEEDINFO state to request additional information
 from the reporter, or close the bug (either as a duplicate of an
 existing one, or using other closure reasons - CANTFIX for problems
 with proprietary drivers or kernels that have such drivers loaded, for
 example).

 The ASSIGNED state is a state that has a new meaning - it used to mean
 that the bug was actually assigned to a person. Instead, it now means
 that the bug is capable of being worked on by a maintainer - i.e. the
 triage team believes that this is a complete, actionable bug - i.e.
 with a stack trace for a crasher, various log files for other
 components, complete AVC message for SELinux stuff, etc.

IMO this is bad, as we don't differentiate between "this is a bug" and
"someone is actually working on it" then; ASSIGNED should mean what it
says, that a bug is assigned to a person or group of persons to work on
it.
+1 Aggreed..
Perhaps another state (TRIAGED, VERIFIED?) should be
introduced/re-used for that.

I suggest Confirmed ( as in confirmed as a bug ) then moved to Assign.

If there is no response from upstream in ( let's say week/2 weeks/ a month ) given time. ( Some thing that gives something back to the bug reporter on the status of the bug EVEN if it is just working on or still working on it ) . That component will be marked "upstream dead" and removed from bz due to no responce
and removed from next release of Fedora..

Best regards.
