Well, I see that working well for some teams, but not all teams in Fedora work 
that way. How we deal with bugs within the KDE SIG is that we don't _assign_ a 
bug to another developer, but instead a developer should _claim_ the bugs they 
want to own (and the assignee who claimed the bug is supposed to work on it, so 
we'll usually not touch bugs claimed by someone else). So how we used to work 
is that we assigned the bugs to ourselves and set them to ASSIGNED when 
claiming them. Important bugs are regularly brought up in the meetings to make 
sure someone takes care of them and to check progress. Now that ASSIGNED has 
been redefined, it will no longer be immediately clear whether the bug was just 
set to ASSIGNED by a triager (and is still assigned to the default assignee) or 
actually claimed by the assignee. We'll probably end up just using ON_DEV when 
claiming bugs, I've put this up for discussion at the next meeting.
