[Bug Triage]

+ Related wiki: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugTriage

    1. The current bug triage process looks working very well. One thing in
    lack of fields like:

        - 'NEEDINFO'
        - 'UNCONFIRMED'
        - etc.

    Is somebody working on them? And any other field of current bugzilla is better
    off being improved?

    2. Multiple language bug reports

    I ever saw bugs opened in French, German and Chinese. Some of them were
    kept alive when somebody translated while some of them were closed as
    invalid since people ignored them.

    So do we need an explicit rules for those? After all Libreoffice is being
    used by people in the world. We may overlook those real bugs reported by
    closing them immediately.

    A possible process for such a situation is, instead of setting those bugs
    as invalid immediately, to set a timeout threadhold (10 days for
    example)to wait a non-English bug translation. After the timeout, we close
    the bug as Invalid.

    Another solution (great one) might be l10n people add their names to the


    wiki page. Then we could put the names into CC and ask for a translation?

    How do you see that?
