Can I/should I mark a bug as "in progress"?
This is my first time contributing to an open source program, and I'm not quite sure how things work around here. I've picked an issue I want to start working on, but I'm worried someone else will fix it before I do. Is there a way to mark an issue as "in progress" or something like that? Or if someone else fixes the issue before me do I just throw away my code?
