Another idea I have would be to treat bugs depending on the count of open bugs tor the component/package. E.g. there are a lot of bugs for F6 and previous for some packages (e.g. kernel, anaconda) that also have a lot of open bug reports for F7 and later. Here it is very unlikely, that the bug will be fixed soon or it is likely, that the bug is already fixed but nobody mentioned it / closed the bug. For kernel and anaconda, I guess testing whether the bug is still present, needs often special hardware or a special setup. Therefore just using needinfo and closing after a timeout may be not so bad. Unless we can find the ressources to fix the bugs. Maybe this allows to reduce the amount of open bugs to a smaller number, that allows to review them manually by a team to find out, whether they are already fixed and adjust the version. Also there are 1308 Bugs for F6 and earlier already in NEEDINFO state. Here closing all bugs that are in this state for, e.g. 3 months or longer, also sounds not so bad to me. Regards, Till
