This brings up some issues that still need clarifying:

Here is what MantisBT defines each and every status:

In the Scribus wiki there is a page that talks about how it uses the above
labeling system:

What we are missing clarity about are the following scenarios, when a
1) requires more feedback from OP
2) requires more feedback from a core dev
3) needs more feedback from the community
4) is patched and awaiting testing (we have a 'Patch' field that is
'Yes/No' but it's not visible so well in the main Mantis screen, ideally we
could color code it)
5) s a Feature Request that is not likely to be added
6) is a Feature Request that has some likelyhood of being added but at some
later unknown time

Those are the different cases I can think of right now, feel free to add

FYI Mantis also allows customization of status values:

Other relevant topics are discussed in:
* "What is the "Feedback" status in Mantis?" (

* "[MANTIS] adding a status to mantis for request with a patch attached" (

* "in mantis create a new "status" called "patch"" (

* "Augmentations to Mantis" (http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=12544)
