Is this something that we want in Thunderbird and Mailnews?

   A short while ago we had a discussion about how to stream line some 
QA processes (Desktop QA - Bugzilla keywords: Proposal on dev-quality) 
and reduce the bug spam generated by setting keywords and whiteboard 
tags (Bugspam generated by the new process on firefox-dev). The final 
resolution of this discussion was to have a new Bugzilla flag created, 
qe-verify, that would replace the current use of QA+/- whiteboard tags 
and the verifyme keyword. This will give you the ability to easily 
filter out any activity on the flag instead of needing to have multiple 
filters for keywords and whiteboard activity as well simplify our 
queries for tracking work to be done in QE. The use of other keywords 
(qawanted, qaurgent, steps-wanted, regression-window-wanted, 
testcase-wanted) will remain the same.

Currently this is only implemented for Firefox QE, other teams are more 
then welcome to adopt if so desired.

  New Flag: qe-verify[?|+|-]
   qe-verify[?] = triage request
   qe-verify[+] = bug to be verified
   qe-verify[-] = bug will not/can not be verified

  Deprecate use of:
   Whiteboard tag: QA[?|+|-]
   Keyword       : verifyme

  The component list the flag can be set for is:

   Core                   -- Any --
   Firefox                -- Any --
   Firefox for Android    -- Any --
   Firefox for Metro      -- Any --
   Firefox Health Report  -- Any --
   Firefox OS             -- Any --
   Loop                   Client
   Loop                   General
   Mozilla Localizations  -- Any --
   Mozilla QA             Mozmill Tests
   Mozilla Services       -- Any --
   NSPR                   -- Any --
   NSS                    -- Any --
   Plugins                -- Any --
   Snippets               -- Any --
   Toolkit                -- Any --

If there is a component that I missed please let me or the bugzilla team 
know so we can fix it.
