Resolved means "I've completed my coding".

Then comes code review / testing.   If there's any further discussion,  
the issue is "reopened".

If we decide we don't want it, the issue is "rejected".

If we want the ed team to comment, we reopen, attach a screenshot, and  
send a note to the ed team.

The ed team also has the option to comment on betas, which we'll have  
monthly, so there's plenty of time to make changes.

Does this help?
