Well everyone, after reviewing all of the options, I
chose sighted because I meant that the programmers
"viewed/saw" the bugs and fixed them or reported them.
Sited was definitely wrong and cited didn't seem quite
right either.  So, for now anyway, the word is
sighted.  I may just change the entire sentence in
order to alleviate any questions about my meaning :). 
Thanks for the input.
