Upcoming Bugzilla activities related to F10 GA

Ahh, the leaves are changing, it's getting cold (at least here in the
Northern Hemisphere!), and snow is just around the corner! All of this
brings a new release of Fedora! And with each new Fedora release comes
some Bugzilla housekeeping. This e-mail is designed to let you know
about two things happening around November 25, 2008 (release of Fedora
10) and what you need to do, if anything.

1. We will be rebasing all rawhide bugs to F10. This will result in
regular bugs reported against rawhide during the Fedora 10 development
cycle being changed to version '10' instead of their current
assignment, 'rawhide'.  This is done in order to more accurately tell
where in the lineage of releases the bug was last reported because
over time 'rawhide' becomes ambiguous.

Note that this procedure does not apply to bugs that are against
component 'Package Review' or bugs that have the 'FutureFeature' or
'Tracking' keywords set, which will stay open in rawhide indefinitely.

If you do not want your bugs changed to version '10', add the
FutureFeature keyword. If you need help changing a large amount of
bugs manually, we'd be glad to help. Stop by #fedora-qa on
irc.freenode.net and we'll help you.

2. All bugs for EOL releases (at this point, Fedora 8) will get a
comment on or about GA of Fedora 10, explaining that one month of
maintenance remains, and to either move the bug to a later version if
still applicable, or they will be automatically closed in one month
with a resolution of WONTFIX.
