The discussion was scheduled on a public webpage, but the Launchpad spec

That is true, but I'd like you to recognise that the policy that you 
suggested above had been imposed (that bugs should not be assigned to 
triagers) is in no way related to this technical change. It is only my 
personal opinion and I've stated that twice.

What has beene taken away? The ability for anyone with an email address 
to set bugs to In progress and similar. We have also added 3 new bug
