So far, we've tried to work around the problem by setting the status of such an issue to "assigned". But that hasn't happened for all the issues with a patch and it still doesn't help to find all issues with a patch, since you would also get issues that are assigned to people currently working on it.

The only downside is that we're losing the information whether it was a bug or feature request to begin with. But then again that information can still be seen in the issue's history.

Well, do we do the change of category soon after a patch is uploaded
or once it gets reviewed?
