ON has always followed used a system where "Fix Available"/FIX means
that the fix has been put back, and "Fix Delivered"/INT means that it
has been integrated into the WOS. Unfortunately, the mail you get
after putting back is rather flaccidly worded:
The gatekeeper will mark these bugids "8-Fix Available" and "10-Fix
Delivered" in Bugster as soon as the gate has been delivered to the
WOS. However, you can mark them "8-Fix Available" (but not "10-Fix
Delivered") now if you wish.
Perhaps we should strengthen this and make it a requirement.
