Hi Kohei,

yes, you are completely right, those assignations were a legacy, and 
it's a useful clearing up for those bugs to change the status if you do 
not plan to work on them in near future.

It was the the core of my question whether you wanted to have those Bug 
in some kind of abeyance between NEW and ASSIGNED. I think currently we 
do it so that bugs with Status ASSIGNED always have an assignee 
different from <libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org>, and un-ASSIGNED 
have the default assignee. So - if we do not see concerns here - I would 
appreciate to follow your suggestion to  change to the  default 
assignees of the not fixed Bugs in the query. That might encourage 
volunteers to engage.

Without new arguments here I will add some more precise hints in the 
Wiki on monday.

Thanks and best regards
