What does that flag tell us that we couldn't find with a (named) query ?

How does the detector distinguish between a patch and some other attachment,
such as a stack trace, or other log ?

The point is that someone needs to triage 'manually', at some point.
Either the submitter, when setting that flag, or the assignee, when reviewing
the attachment.


I thought we discussed that already...
