this sounds similar to BibisectRequest - which one to keep?

useful, keep

sounds potentially useful, we don't have a "component" with similar
scope (but if we keep it the description needs to remove "Xorg" and it
should be merged with "l10" as they seem very similar)

sounds like EasyHack? DELETE

see "i18n" above

not sure if we want this, best to get BoD's opinion on that...

covered by EasyHack -> DELETE

this is a status, so doesn't need to be a keyword too?

the patch attachment should have the "patch" flag set which can be
queried so why do we need this?

keep the all-time favorite, remove "Xorg" from description though

sure, let's keep them in the public bug tracker :D

hmm sounds like it could be useful...

"confirmedRegression" never served any purpose and should be summarily

"possibleRegression" could be a keyword, unless it's considered too
transient a state... is that a criterion? hmmm... why not just add it...

"confirmed:VERSION:OS" "noRepro:VERSION:OS" "needsSOFTWARE"
"needsHARDWARE" "target:X.Y" "summary:comment#" are not fixed so cannot
be keyword

"bibisected" should be keyword

"odf" and "odf_validation" should be keywords

"a11y" sounds useful as a keyword

"perf" sounds useful as a keyword

"interoperability" could be a keyword too, although perhaps a better
name is required that indicates this is about Microsoft Office and its
formats in particular ("MSOinterop"? "MSO"? "MSinterop"? "MSOffice"?).

there are *lots* of easy-hack related ones... not sure about those?
perhaps better leave them in the whiteboard since we may often add
additional ones etc. and the keyword list may become cluttered?
