ON allows "Fix available" to be set after integration, but most folks
don't do this; we could make this a best practice and key off of it in the
bug view, but it would still be up to each engineer to do this manually
since there isn't a automated tool to handle this. Setting the bug to "Fix
integrated" is only done by the gatekeepers after the close of the build
as noted earlier.
One other problem that I've noticed is that for bugs which have an
external contributor assigned you can't see the external contributor in
the bug report view. Instead you have to search the list of sponsored bugs
looking there, which isn't intuitive and is more work.
