I totally support the proposal. We can start doing it right away :)
(yes, I’m plagiarizing some famous russian guy here, I know…)

>> Even being more strict and moving issues to TODO, only helps so much.
>> So I'd like to do this a bit different:
>> * add "Blender: Unconfirmed" project.
>> * If we get a valid bug report but can't redo it, we move immediately
>> to "Blender: Unconfirmed" with a canned response.
>> * 2 other people need to check the report.
>> * If after 2 weeks nobody can redo the issue, we close it.
>> This means users have some more responsibility to have others check
>> bugs, and redo.
>> It does risks closing valid issues sometimes, but at this point we
>> just have a bugs nobody can redo and nobody replies
>> to, so they arent useful to have open.
>> If the bug really happens for others probably it gets reported again
>> Of course if a report is incomplete we still mark as incomplete, if
>> its a TODO, move it,
>> this is for valid reports which give steps we can follow, but no way
>> to redo the bug.
