[wtp-dev] Triaged bugs


Hi,

The current WTP process calls for all bugs to be assigned to someone immediately on arriving in the inbox, to ensure that all bugs have been triaged and are in the right component. Even though we've only been doing this for a short time, we've already been running into some issues:

* This can give the reporter the false impression that someone is actually working on or looking at the bug.
* It makes it impossible for people who want to help out to see which bugs are free.

I vote that we either:
1) scrap this mechanism and follow the way Eclipse does things.
2) generate another set of ids for each component (e.g. "jst.server-triaged@xxxxxxxxxxx") that can be used to indicate the "it's in the right component but nobody is working on it yet" state.
