Agreeing doesn't fix the resource problems. For special packages, it's
1374 bugs found
For others, it isn't.
49 bugs found
But the bugzapping EOL script treats all packages equally, afaik. It would
also kill off _the single one_ major crasher ticket for a maintainer's
single package just because nobody replies in bugzilla.
It's not going to "kill" the bug - it will ask the submitter to check
the bug still applies to newer Fedora version.
Why does everyone want to put more and more burden on maintainers and arguing
about small things that users should do?
How can you expect a maintainer to fix/respond to hundreds of bugs and not
expect the user to verify his/her bug still applies?
