Strange thing is that when I *do* select Harmony project and click a 
link in the box to show the specific custom fields project, then Status 
menu doesn't have  "Patch Available" item, instead there is a "Patch 
Available" checkbox at the bottom of the search queries page. That's why 
I thought it is some custom thing made only for Harmony project. Maybe 
it is just a weirdness of JIRA interface.
