I would like to see “unit test needed” removed from the workflow menu in the bug tracker. The reason is that we don't do test-driven development (or, at least, most of us don't) and this stage entry is therefore useless and confusing. Saying to someone that an unit test is needed happens during the patch review - it isn't a separate stage in itself.
The reason I'm asking is that I've seen some triagers bumping a lot of issues to “unit test needed” lately, and I find this annoying. What we need is patches, not unit tests per se.
I often see patches without a test, and have assumed this is what this stage is for - where a patch is provided without a corresponding test.
On the other hand checkboxes for fix / test / docs sounds fine.
