via Waylan Limberg, on django-developers:
So, in other words, accepted simply means that the ticket reports a
valid bug or feature request that is considered worth fixing, but
offers to indication as to the status of any patches for committing.
Obviously, some seem to imply the later meaning into "Accepted" which
could raise the question regarding whether it is named correctly (I
say it is fine). But, more importantly, is there a place were each
status is simply defined?
Sure there is this:
But that hardly makes clear exactly what "accepted" actually means.
The text in that section is helpful to understanding the basic
process, but if someone changes the status of my ticket, there's no
definitive place to go and see exactly what that status means.
In fact, in reading the list over the last few years, I have the
impression that this is a problem that is repeated constantly. People
don't understand what the various statuses mean and get frustrated
when things do not happen as they expected. I think perhaps clearer
documentation would help in this case.
