Slightly Drafty
Still some work to do to round out the content on this page. Initial starting point was copy/paste from Fedora 13. All help and changes to fine tune are welcome.

This page describes Bugzilla House Keeping tasks that need to be completed during Fedora 16. They are listed in chronological order.

Rawhide Rebase Warning to Package Maintainers


Greetings,

I hope everyone is well.  This e-mail is intended to inform you about the upcoming
bugzilla changes happening around July 27, 2010 (Rawhide bug rebase) and what you
need to do, if anything.

We will be automatically changing the version for most rawhide bugs to Fedora 14.
This will result in regular bugs reported against rawhide during the Fedora 14
development cycle being changed to version ‘14' instead of their
current assignment, ‘rawhide’.   This is to align with the branching of 
Fedora 14 from rawhide and to more accurately tell where in the lineage of 
releases the bug was last reported.

Note that this procedure does not apply to bugs that are open for the ‘Package Review’ 
component or bugs that have the ''FutureFeature'' or ''Tracking'' keywords set.
They will stay open as rawhide bugs indefinitely.

If you do not want your bugs changed to version ‘14‘, add the FutureFeature keyword.
If you need help changing a large amount of bugs manually, we’d be glad to help.
Stop by #fedora-bugzappers on irc.freenode.net and we’ll gladly help you.

Comment Text

This message is a reminder that Fedora 14 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 14.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '14'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 14's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 14 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Comment Text

Since we didn't preannounce things in the Fedora 16 cycle, we used this comment:

<pre>
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

If we had announced properly, we'd have used this message instead:

Fedora 14 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on ''(date here)''. Fedora 14 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to click on "Clone This Bug" (top right of this 
page) and open it against that version of Fedora.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
