Hi Dan,

Thanks for your inquiry.

        QA has looked at the bug and the resolution and agrees that the
        appropriate resolution has been taken. Bugs remain in this state
        until the product they were reported against actually ships, at
        which point they become CLOSED.

Yes that's true, but in Wine the QA is mostly us and the people who
report the bugs to be fixed. In Wine usually when a bug is marked as
fixed and not reopened shortly after, it really means that it's fixed
and thus verified. What I feel is that people reporting bugs, you and me
and others actually ARE Wine's QA.

I don't think that having ~800 bugs marked as fixed since years was
useful. Maybe now that they are closed, the new fixed bugs can actually
be verified by some of the active QA people in Wine. There have been
more activity lately in bugzilla and keeping all these old bugs fixed
and not closed was not doing any good imho. Having about 10/15 bugs to
verify between each snapshot is much more maintainable and can hopefully
be done.

This was discussed on IRC when quite a lot of people where online (see
my message to wine-devel).
