Regardless whether there is a separate status for "triaged" bugs or not, the
mentioned actions only involve QA, and no developer activity. Thanks for the
feedback, though, it's helpful to know what is worthwhile to spend time on.

My original point was that the keyword asking for developer advice should not
be restricted to UNCONFIRMED bugs if confirmed bugs don't have the
requirement of reproducibility by QA.

Nevertheless, I agree that effort is better spent elsewhere than pursuing
really obscure bugs, it seems to be something where careful prioritization is
