I think that is sort of letting whoever didn't 'look' at it inside of
RH lightly. Some of those 'bugs' were feature requests and such that
were looked as being useful at one point for a future release.. A
WONTFIX could be the wrong answer in those cases. I think the
NEED_INFO -> WONTFIX / Relabel to more accurate info would be better.
[With the relabel being the person who opened the ticket if their
email address is still accurate etc.]
