I think you misunderstand. The mechanism to assign the default assign
for "bug tickets" after a component has been imported into cvs is
somewhat automated based on the owners file in cvs. Its sort of a one
time assignment for that component when the component is created

The question is does bugzilla really know for sure that someone has
been sponsered in the fedora accounts system?  The bugzilla groups and
the fedora account system are not a 1-to-1 mapping. Anyone who is a
member of fedorabugs in the fedora account system can get extensive
rights to mainpulate bugzilla entries, but they do not have cvs commit
access or sponsorship in the package contributor sense.  I simply do
not know if bugzilla has a mechanism to distinquish people with
sponsorship from people with bugzilla editting rights, which aren't
necessarily the same group of people.  Now it could be that bugzilla's
"fedora_contrib" account flag is exactly what is needed. Is this
bugzilla account flag only given to sponsored contributors to extras?
I simply don't know for sure if thats the case.
