For the time being, I think we're stuck with this alias as a way to
check on the 'real' status of bugs. And checking on any bug -
oss-bite-size included - is probably a good idea.
We are working on making more information available via
bugs.opensolaris.org, but that is realistically a couple of months away.
Using this alias to check early isn't optimal, but I'm not sure how else
to do it, and it's better than nothing until we have more information
If this an acceptable way to proceed for now, to what other aliases
should I send this suggestion to make people aware of the shortcomings
of bugs.opensolaris.org information and how they might avoid working on
something already being worked?
