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 August 6, 2012 (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 ‘15' instead of their
current assignment, ‘rawhide’.   This is to align with the branching of 
Fedora 15 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 ‘15‘, 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 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '16'.

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 16'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 16 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, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" 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

Comment Text

Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 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 reopen this bug against that version.

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