Renamed "Assigned" in the default data to "In Progress"
|Assignee:||Eric Davis||% Done:|
"Assigned" implies a connection to the Assigned To field. I've heard from many people that get confused about it so I propose changing the default data to use "In Progress" instead. This would only affect new installs.
Anyone have a reason not to use "In Progress"? If not, I'll make the change.

We use "In Progress" as a state in workflows all the time (and that could get confusing). In some installations we've renamed "Assigned" to "Responsible" or "Owner" and explained it as who currently carries the issue. We mostly have longer workflows than the default ones.
"In progress" do signal that the issue has been accepted in some kind of handover.
If it is a handover, should we then limit choices to only empty and yourself? That could work for me, but would create some new problems when we would like to ASK someone to do something (as a start of the handover).
A quick reading of this issue would give me something like "New, but in progress by Eric (who will update it when he is done)".
As you can see I'm a bit torn. Some nice integration with workflow might make things understandable and intuitive but I'm not even sure I can see an optimal endstate. Complex issue.

I've renamed "Assigned" to "In Progress" in the data loader. I changed all of the i18n language values for that field to English so it can be re-translated. r2939
