I don't think there's a way to prevent it.

Not really. I don't consider the particular state of an issue entered on 
BugZilla of any relevance on the process, unless there is working group 
consensus that this is the case.

Now *how* working group consensus is determined is an interesting 
question, and I hope that at some point of time (hopefully soon), Joe H. 
will tune in and discuss with us how he plans to proceed in general (and 
with BIND in particular). If we can't get the chair's attention (for 
whatever reason), we'll probably have to discuss alternative routes.

Best regards, Julian
