I think this is a valuable discussion. I don't think cross-posted
discussions work, though, so i'm replying in the various groups (except
zope-collector-monitor, which is only meant for collector-originating
submissions) with a followup to zope-coders.

My intent for the states is different from what you suggested, in some
cases significantly. It may be that the practice is more like you
describe and makes more sense, i dunno, but here's what i intended:
Pending: Issues that have not yet been settled or assigned to some
supporter, and warrant attention.
Your description, "issues that haven't been considered",
assumes that issues are always assigned or settled when they
are examined, while i think some issues can remain in the
pending state awaiting resource availability.
Accepted: Issues that some supporter(s) has responsibility for resolving
it, and it is not yet resolved.
Your description says that some supporter has assessed the
issue as warranting repair, and later says that the the issue
has an assigned supporter. I think it's a lot clearer to
directly say that an accepted issue has a supporter
responsible for resolving it.
Rejected: Issues that are settled as being somehow invalid or outside
the scope of the system the collector serves.
Resolved: Issues that are settled as having been solved.
Deferred: Issues that are not assigned or settled but warrant revisiting
at some later occasion. This enables, for instance, putting
an issue aside until more information is collected.
Wontfix: Issues that are settled as ones that won't be fixed. These
issues are within the scope of the collector, but would
require more effort than they're worth. (Sustained lack of a
champion who will take responsibility for solving the issue
is one sign of that.)
