If so, you will be asked to open a separate bug report.  Either way, you 
will get a resolution and an opportunity to escalate if you don't find 
that resolution to be satisfactory.

>> Bugs will get RESOLVED.  At the point the bugs are resolved, you have essentially two options: REOPEN the bug with new information if you want the editor to reconsider the resolution based on new information.  Or you can disagree with the resolution by marking the bug as a TrackerIssue, at which point it an issue will be opened, and Change Proposals will be solicited.  Please do not simultaneously REOPEN a bug and pursue it as an issue.  Also don't be surprised if a bug goes 30 days or more before being addressed particularly as the priority at the moment is seeing that pre-LC issues are resolved.
