What is the meaning of the state: 'new' versus the state: 'submited'


To me both 'new' and 'submitted' are pretty close in the meaning. I can't come to an easy rule indicating when to use one or the other. I'm just curious to know what was the designers intention behind the 'new' (versus the 'submitted') state?

"Submitted" as synonim for "Approved".
Say we have next process:
1. All created by users issues are "New" by default.
2. Than manager checks for "New" bugs and decides what is real issue and what is not.
3. Bugs which should  be actually fixed are marked as "Submitted"
4. Developers search for all submitted issues and starts working
5. And so on.

Something like that, I guess.
