[ I added gnucash-devel in to the conversation ]
I started a new job about a month ago. Here, there are regular QA reports, and one of the items they report is the number of unverified bugs. Marking a bug resolved only means that engineering thinks they have fixed it.
Sorry about all the mail. Only 3495 bugs to go :-|
Of more interest, of course, are the 822 bugs which are still new or open. I've started to go through them, looking for duplicates or patches to apply, adding requests for more info. We need to bring the number down as part of 2.4 release.

I guess we've really never differentiated between "resolved" and "verified".
Personally I've never looked for a closed bug without knowing something
about what I was looking for.
Initial reporters rarely "verify" bugs.
I was just wondering about all the mail. ;)
Quoting Phil Longstaff <plongstaff at rogers.com>:
> They're only resolved, not really closed. I'm closing all of the really old ones to clean up a bit. Having the original reporter change the bug from resolved -> verified is a useful final step to show that the original problem is, in fact, solved. Cleaning out all of the really old bugs that no one cares about means that a search for resolved bugs can be useful again.
