: Uh...a `tagged line'? Why don't you just change the Responsible:
: field? And why change the state to analysed if it has not actually
: been analysed?

If I remember gnats properly from the last time I set a server up, it
requires entries in its config line for the Responsible: party.  If someone
that's not in the server's config wants to work on it, the Responsible:
field wouldn't work.

If I'm wrong, please correct me.
