I was basing my notion on the fact that the gnats bug database interface
defines 5 stages, in this order:

open  -->  analysed --> suspended --> feedback --> closed

which matches the process of

bug submitted
it gets reviewed
patch worked up
patch sent back to bug reporter, see if it fixes their problem
problem solved.
