You beat me to it. Devs can ask for bugzilla "admin" rights by asking
an appropriate admin or asking on -devel (I saw one just recently). I
also agree with not giving extra control to all registered users (btw,
I'm just a regular user on bugzilla; I've had to request bugs be
marked DUP rather than set it myself :) ). It's bad enough they can
change the status of their own bugs from INVALID to UNCONFIRMED (which
I have seen all too often).
"This is not a bug in Wine. Talk to <insert project here>. Closing invalid."
"No, this IS a bug in Wine because Windows behaves differently! Reopening."
