Hi Bjoern,

of course I see the problem, but I have absolutely no problem with that 
fact, because I use a query basing on my experience. You find it here:
The hit quote for bugs needing "maintenance" is neaby 100% vor me.

If you want to do the bulk change, you should avoid to change hundreds 
of "Really NEW" old bugs to NEEDINFO.

I recommend only to modify bugs what are NEW and fulfill some additional 
criteria (no user with QA-Experience is involved), what leads to this query:


I also added the query link under
<http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugTriage#Process> "And this Query 
only shows ..." because mail clients might break that long link.

It's intended that no developers are included because mostly they only 
contribute some useful information, but will not continue "maintenance" 
for those bugs.

And -  may be you will get some indignant comments because of Bugs 
30876, 31022, 31055, 33232  ;-)

Please involve libreoffice-qa at lists.freedesktop.org into such discussions!

Best regards
