Resolved Waiting for Info, but keep ownership?

Is it possible to mark a bug as resolved waiting for info but keep ownership?

The reason I'd like to do this is I often end up reassigning it to myself anyway afterwards (at the cost of several clicks :-).

If I own a bug but need additional info to resolve it I'd like to keep ownership, and not the project admin, so I get the mail notification when the reporter writes back with that info.

You can subscribe to the bug, and you will then get notifications every time a change is made whether or not the bug is assigned to you.

Yes, that works. But it is an extra step and doesn't solve the real problem. Ownership of the bug is already transferred to someone else, but I still own the bug and have to re-assign it back to myself.

Is the person providing the info a user of FogBugz? If so, shouldn't they hold the responsibility of the case until they gather the info and then assign it back to you?

If the information provider is not a FogBugz user, have you considered not resolving the bug and simply putting a comment on it that you are waiting for information from Customer X?
