The time is almost here to reap the harvest on which so many have toiled and
enjoy the bounty that is Fedora 12. With each new Fedora release comes some
Bugzilla housekeeping. This e-mail is designed to let you know about two things
happening around November 17, 2009 (Fedora 12 release day) and
what you need to do, if anything.
(1) We will be automatically changing the version all rawhide bugs to Fedora 12.
This will result in regular bugs reported against rawhide during the Fedora 12
development cycle being changed to version '12' instead of their current
assignment, 'rawhide'. This is done in order to more accurately tell where in
the lineage of releases the bug was last reported because over time 'rawhide'
Note that this procedure does not apply to bugs that are against component
'Package Review' or bugs that have the 'FutureFeature' or
They will stay open as rawhide bugs indefinitely.
If you do not want your bugs changed to version '12', add the FutureFeature
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 help you.
(2) All bugs for upcoming EOL releases (at this point, Fedora 10) will get a
comment on release day, explaining that one month of maintenance remains.
These bugs must move to a later version if still applicable or they will be
automatically closed in one month with a resolution of WONTFIX.
More about these processes is here:
