Clearly when the bug says Axiom it applies to the Axiom project.
If it says Fricas or OpenAxiom it applies to those projects.

If you'd like to propose a meta-name that is not Axiom then 
it might make sense to have a converged bug list. But if I have
to constantly struggle with the statement "this is a bug in Axiom"
when it is not, then a converged bug list does nothing but sully
the Axiom project reputation by reporting as bugs things that are fixed.

As you can see by my response to your "please review" request, I'm
perfectly happy to respond to Axiom bug reports. If it mentions
"Axiom" it means this project. So the above bug report is a feature

If you'd like to keep bugs in fix-proposed then list it as a Fricas
or OpenAxiom bug report.
