You better not.
lists may be broken down by when they last did build. With 3
exceptions, these 110 bugs are all still in NEW state as well, so they
haven't had much maintainer love in quite some time (6-18 months).
All the Fedora bugzilla bugs assigned to you, ever:
A whole 73.
Fedora Bugzilla bugs in NEW or ASSIGNED assigned to me:
When you deal with as many bugs as I (or some other people) do can you
take executive decisions on blocking packages in newer revisions.
I bet most of those packages are still functional, and fail to build due
to some minor changes in the build system, or breakage in dependency
ModemManager-0.4-4.git20100720.fc14 [u'631152 NEW']
NetworkManager-openvpn-0.8.1-1.fc14 [u'631111 NEW'] (build/make)
NetworkManager-vpnc-0.8.1-1.fc14 [u'631194 NEW'] (build/make) dcbw
And I'm guessing this list didn't get read by humans either.
Feel free to insert here complaints about how the Red Hat bugzilla is
slow, bad at reporting, and that abrt reports with missing attachments,
poor backtraces and no support for tools like GNOME Bugzilla's
simple-dup-finedr aren't helping us keep the bug count down.
And I'll go back to fixing actual bugs encountered by people instead of
random bot-driven bugs.
