Bug Description

What does "Accept" mean

What does "Accept" mean. Does someone "accept" that it's indeed a bug, or does the assignee accept the bug?

It seems like it's mostly used for the former case, although personally "accept" sounds that someone (the assignee) accepts to fix the bug. Maybe it should be renamed to something less ambiguous, like "Confirmed", or some explanation of the different statuses should be added.

Unconfirmed, confirmed and assigned or accepted are a lot less confusing.
