Rawhide Rebase Warning to Package Maintainers


Greetings,
This e-mail is intended to inform you about the upcoming bugzilla changes 
happening the week after August 20, 2013 (Rawhide bug rebase) and what you need 
to do, if anything.

We will be automatically changing the version for most rawhide bugs to Fedora 20.
This will result in regular bugs reported against rawhide during the Fedora 20
development cycle being changed to version ‘20' instead of their
current assignment, ‘rawhide’.  This is to align with the branching of 
Fedora 20 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 ‘20‘, add the FutureFeature keyword.
If you need help changing a large amount of bugs manually, we’d be glad to help.

The process was approved by FESCo https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/1096.

Comment Text

This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '18'.

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 18's end of life.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be 
able to fix it before Fedora 18 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  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

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.

Comment Text

Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
bug.

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