You're welcome to ask, I'm (still) kind of new at this.

Graham, can you confirm the following?

It may be the orthodox way. I use to mark issues as "Accepted" when
I've been able to reproduce the bug. "Verified", currently, means  I
have checked that the bug is fixed (or made invalid for any reason),
and that I probably won't have to look at it again.

Yes, this has already appeared to me at some point, but IIRC this is
more or less what I was told.

Could be -- but a very minor confusion then, since you're the first
one to notice :-)

Graham, we need your lights here...
