Hey Jennifer,

Lloyd has requested that the original query be restored, as that  
report was useful to him as is.  So what I did was restore the "Needs  
Patch" report to its former functionality (shows all tickets that  
lack "has-patch" tag), and I created a new report called "Lacks  
Attachment" that has the new query (shows all tickets that either (a)  
lack an attachment or (b) are marked "needs-patch")

So Report 14 (Needs Patch) is nice for seeing which tickets have not  
been definitely marked as having a patch.

Report 18 (Lacks Attachment) is nice for people looking for a virgin  
ticket with no patch.  If your code finger is itching and you want to  
code up the first solution to a problem, this is where you want to look.

Both are useful, but to different groups.  And if you have  
suggestions for new reports that might be helpful, let me know!
