Yes it is. I've just made the changes, so the complete list of 
categories is now:

Open Status List

New             = Issue has not had initial review yet
Accepted        = Problem reproduced / Need acknowledged
Started         = Work on this issue has begun
Testing         = Developer has made changes, reporter should verify

Closed Status List

Fixed           = Reporter has verified that the fix worked
Invalid         = This was not a valid issue report
Duplicate       = This report duplicates an existing issue
WontFix         = We decided to not take action on this issue

So in other words, once a bug fix has been committed, the status should 
be changed to "Testing" to allow people to report back. Once people 
verify the fix, the status should be changed over to "Fixed". Does that 
make sense to everyone?
