When you say 'a member of the general community' do you mean not in 
ubuntu-qa and not a developer (I ask because people from the volunteer 
community are also in those groups)? If you are not  then it it's 
correct that you cannot set those states. This change gives more 
structure to the bug flow in that it will be more clear what is meant by 
a given state.

If you are trying to reproduce it or asking for more information from 
the submitter then this will be clear from the comments and you can set 
it to Incomplete.

If you are not a developer then it is misleading to set it to In 
Progress because nobody is actually working on the fix and it may never 
be fixed.
