The resolution field is supposed to be used to quickly give someone a clue
on the reasons for an issue to be closed. For instance, a "open" resolution
may not make sense in conjunction with a "Closed" status, but it might make
sense for a "Cancelled" or "Killed" status.
Since the lists of statuses and resolutions are dynamic, you can pretty much
customize that to whatever you want.

Why would you consider the resolution more important than the status?
Wouldn't you want to know the 'current' status of your issues?

Sorry, but the documentation is kind of sparse right now. You can find some
on the online help system, and also on the README / INSTALL files.
