The bug lifecycle documentation is here:

it's linked extensively from the Bugzilla HOWTO, the QA Wiki section,
and also if you get to by clicking on a
field name in a bug, it has a note at the top - "Note: Bugs reported
against Fedora products have a slightly different life cycle which is
described in more detail here." - with a link to the Fedora page.
