Then we need to change the descriptions in the tracker.

Closes Statuses:

Fixed: Developer made requested changes, QA should verify
Verified: QA agrees with the developer
Invalid: This was not a valid issue report
Duplicate: This report duplicates an existing issue

It is obvious that changing "Duplicate" to "Verified" would be a mistake
since it would lose the connection to the issue linked as duplicate.
The usual job of QA is to make sure that the developer's intent is
reflected in code and repository.

So both with respect to the status descriptions as well with what I
consider useful, figure me surprised.  At any rate,
cranks out a list of 44 "Invalid" issues.  According to the stated
policy, those should be marked "Verified" eventually.  That presumably
means that QA needs to check the reasons for marking the issue "Invalid"
and make a decision about a validity of reasoning (rather than, as
usual, a verification of state), then remark as "Verified".

To me this seems both like an untypical requirement towards QA, as well
as making the tracker less useful for figuring out the state of an

Where can I find more about the reasoning of this policy that is not
apparently actively pursued, judging from the current state of the
