I guess this should have been CC'd here ...

Sure thing, I'll include it here and add a link as soon as I post over
at freedesktop bugs

1. If there has been a request for information and there has been no
response for 30+ days I'm putting NEEDINFO

2. If two or more people have said that they do not have the bug I'm
doing the following if there hasn't been action for 30+ days:
a. If it's stated that the bug was fixed in a recent release, I'm
putting RESOLVED with a comment that if it's not for the author or
someone else to open it back up
b. If it's stated that it's not our bug I'm changing status to NOTOURBUG
c. If it's stated that it never was a bug I'm putting NOTABUG with a
comment saying to open it back up with more information if it is a bug

3. If it's confirmed by other people I'm changing it to confirmed

4. Of course I'm taking a glance at them to see if I can take them on,
I've assigned two to myself. 

5. If someone appears to be working on the bug and has implicitly or
explicitly said they are doing it (ie. it's in progress, almost done,
"I'll take this one", etc..) I'm changing to assigned and adding a name

With thousands of unknown bugs I think that this will help us divvy up
the work and prioritize a bit. After I do this phase I'll try to get
consensus on how to prioritize. Obviously security bugs and resource
leaks get highest, next I'm not sure but we can discuss this after.

I hope I'm not overstepping, just trying to help as much as possible as
it seems like there is a bit of a back log. If this isn't wanted just
let me know and I'll cease immediately.

Thanks to everyone contributing to this great project.

                cleaning of bug
                reports. Changing a lot to NEEDINFO, RESOLVED, etc...We
                have way too
                many bugs listed as unknown that haven't been touched in
                months and have
                been confirmed to not be an issue or needs updated
                without updates from
                original authors of the bugs. Hope no one minds.
        Hi Joel,
        thank you for your initiative. Can you please present your ideas
        with some more details on
        <libreoffice-qa at lists.freedesktop.org>?
        Best regards
