Adding tracking states to Bugzilla

Sounds to me like you might benefit to use the UNCONFIRMED state if you
aren't already.

Subject: Adding tracking states to Bugzilla

I maintain a customized version of Bugzilla at my organization.
Currently, some managers want me to add a new state to our Bugzilla.
It would mean the same as "ACCEPTED" but carry the additional meaning
that it's not actively being worked on.

I can handle the technical aspects of modifying Bugzilla to do this,
but the real question I have is should this be done at all?  I don't
think this is a good idea, (if people want something like
this it shouldn't be a state) but I was wondering what the people on
this list thought of adding this kind of state vs. some other device.

Any opinions or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
