The simple answer is that the communication between the Launchpad team
and Ubuntu team failed in this instance. I got a brief ping on IRC
yesterday and felt I should post a notice about it. I wrote that based
on some notes, from my memory and some IRC questions. I had assumed that
the new states and renaming would be the controversial part and did not
recall the restrictions item until someone asked a question that
reminded me. My mistake.
It turns out now, after having had more talks with the Launchpad team
that *restrictions will not be placed on In Progress, Fix Committed or
Fix Released* at this point. More work is needed to make that possible,
so it will not be included in this round. Doing that is still part of
the plan but this debate will obviously make us look at that again.
I've asked the Launchpad developer working on this to post a summary of
the changes being made now so we get it directly from the source. I've
already contradicted myself so many times that I should probably stop :)
