Ok, so the "In Progress" state will go off of Open state.  I guess that 
the idea of the reviewed state for the actual patch application.  Please

Yeah, we can use the current process for that.

I had intended to restrict it.  Do you think that it would be useful to 
always be able to move back to a RTC voting stage?  When would we need 
to do that after approval?
