Sure. Here it is:

- TODO :: Open, not (yet) started.
- STRT :: In progress, working on, doing.
- WAIT :: On hold, assigned, feedback.
- SDAY :: Someday, maybe, perhaps, wish.
- DONE :: Completed, closed, resolved.
- CANX :: Wontfix, rejected.

The only exception, but that's on purpose is "NEW" for things going to
the CollectBox.
