At the Wednesday meeting we agreed to the following states.


In the first two pairs of states there are base states of pending
and processing with a variant for each state formed by adding "stopped".
In the last triple, there are three variants with suffixes, but there
is no "done" state.


The states are:


 pending
 pending-stopped
 processing
 processing-stopped
 done-aborted
 done-canceled
 done-completed


I suggest changing the last three states to


  completed
  completed-canceled
  completed-abort


Then, as with the first two pairs, the single word represents the normal
case, and the suffixed variants are special cases of completion.  These
single-word states then fit in with the three attributes:
   time-since-pending
   time-since-processing
   time-since-completed
