Re: [QA] To clone or not to clone ( a bug report ) that's the question...

I'd prefer A.  My reasons:

  1) the same "bug" may be caused by different things in different
releases.  Not every package has the same code for the entire release

  2) different sets of users care about bugs in different release trees.
Closing a bug as fixed->rawhide doesn't help the user who is hitting
this issue on say F-9.

  3) bodhi auto-closing.  Not every update gets pushed at the same time,
and closing a single bug when an F-10 update goes out doesn't help the
F-9 users know that the update for their release has gone out, or been
delayed, or just not provided.

  4) The maintainer is the right person to decide if the bugs should be
collapsed into one, rather than the triager trying to make a judgement
call.  It's easier to close->dup than to clone in the first place, if
all the above doesn't apply.
