That's correct.

Here's how I tend to work with issues:

  * I Open new issues and leave them Unassigned unless I know
    I will be working on it soon.
  * I Assign an Open issue to Myself when I know I will be
    working on it soon.
  * I Start Progress on an issue as soon as I start working
    on it. I Stop Progress on an issue when I go do something
    else and don't expect to get back to it for some time.
    (I confess I'm not very diligent about this though.)
  * I Resolve an issue after a fix has been committed and
    verified (i.e., test case passes). I leave the issue in
    Resolved state until a test for it has been added to
    the test suite.
  * I Close issues that have tests in the test suite which
    pass. I also Close issues (usually bypassing the Resolved
    state) that we can't easily add tests for (such as makefile
    bugs, etc.)

The one thing that's fuzzy in this process is the part about
adding the test case to the test suite. We have no regression
tests so I've been enhancing the conformance tests instead.
I don't think that's quite right. I think we should add
a regression test for each bug, even if the same functionality
is (or will be) also tested by a conformance test.

Right. It is the desired final state.
