I agree that new should now automatically be set to UNCONFIRMED when they are not assigned yet (i.e. have been automatically assigned to bug-wranglers) but to CONFIRMED when they are being assigned directly to their respective maintainers. For existing bugs, then, NEW bugs should be changed to UNCONFIRMED when they are assigned to bug-wranglers, and to CONFIRMED when they have already been assigned to their maintainers (irrespective of whether they are actually confirmed or not or whether they are deemed to be actual bugs). Status = NEW && Assignee = bug-wranglers -> Status = UNCONFIRMED Status = NEW && Assignee = [maintainer] -> Status = CONFIRMED

Thanks, those really helped. (The only problem I have with the new workflow is that bugs assigned to bug-wranglers can usually be dealt with more quickly when it is obvious that new information has been added, which is the case when a bug has been closed as RESOLVED, NEEDINFO, after which reopening it will set it to REOPENED. If we're going to lose that, then the b-w assigned list loses some definition. But maybe bugzilla 4's support of the Changed column can help there.) jer
