[Libreoffice-qa] Cleaning bug list

I guess my next question is, if I'm not an "experienced user", can I really
be messing with this at all? I think the flow isn't great and it would be
much better to have a CONFIRMED status and then for the developers to
assign themselves to projects, preferably tackling higher priority bugs
first and leaving minor issues (like labels, etc..) to novice programmers
to assign to themselves. At best I think that having a "Suggestion" for
Assigned to would make sense as it would send an email to the developer who
might be willing to handle the bug.

Ultimately I think that developers are capable of going to FDO and
assigning bugs to themselves without having to add a middle man to CC them,
and them for them to reject the CC, and the process just restart.

I'm going to continue until someone tells me to stop (I don't believe I'm
an experienced user but I do think that I'm more than capable of cleaning
this list a lot).
