What exactly does the moderator-assigned "status-bydesign" tag mean? What other moderator only tags are there, and what are their meanings?

Status-bydesign is the response to a bug/feature request stating that this is the intended behavior.

Status-completed means the feature/bug fix has been implemented.

Status-declined means the feature request is "rejected" and will not be implemented.

Status-norepro means a bug cannot be duplicated

Status-planned is a feature that is being planned.

Status-review is a bug/feature being reviewed.

Status-reproduced is a bug that has been successfully reproduced.

I'm not sure what status-deffered is intended to mean.

I believe there is also a status-accepted (though there are none currently) which would be when a feature request has been accepted, but has not been completed yet.

  • As per the question, what other moderator tags are there?
