But from the other hand, bug submitter could be a person who is using
Harmony snapshot and does not know how to apply the patch and build
Harmony...
It is also possible that issue creator is not subscribed to Harmony dev list...

So I think that *require* from issue creator to check the fix *before*
not the best solution.

Let's allow to set this field to everybody and clear it for committers
(if it's possible :)
In this case "resolution provider" could set the property and
committer could clear it if he does not like the fix...

SY, Alexey
