I don't think the LFS testing team signed up to be nALFS testers as 
well, but I could be mistaken. The other concern here is that a bug 
may be put into FIXED state, committed to CVS, but untestable because 
CVS HEAD may be in a state of flux and not usable (shouldn't really 
happen, but you never know).

I think the process I outlined in my other message, being:

assignee puts patch into buzilla and changes status to FIXED

reviewer (other member of nALFS development team) reviews code and 
either changes status to VERIFIED or back to ASSIGNED if additional 
work is needed

assignee or other code commit person commits patch to CVS and changes 
status to CLOSED

James, I currently can't accept ("assign") bugs to myself, except when 
I enter them. Can this be changed?
