Bugzilla spam.  If we keep the release open for random bug filing, we
have no good way of telling bugzilla that only specific users should get
bugs for specific releases of Fedora.  Ownership is at a product level,
not at the product version level.  So maintainers will get all the spam,
and have to forward it along to whomever is handling security updates.

This one could be solved by having a separate component in bugzilla like
"Fedora Legacy", however that does move into a space that is visible to
end users.  Bug triage could probably move bugs from normal Fedora to
"Fedora Legacy" if people were reporting against the correct version but
incorrect product.

For the Bugzilla gurus out there, to what extent is Bugzilla capable to Assign a bug to the owner of a package for a certain branch?

Say I file a bug against foo in Fedora 8 now, and have ownership of the foo package in PackageDB... would the owner of the foo package in Fedora !8 branches be spammed with the Bugzilla report? Would it end up in his/her assigned list?

I guess the example here is EPEL, which has a separate product "Fedora EPEL" in Bugzilla, no? I guess it would be doable to add a product "Fedora End-Of-Sales" or something (please avoid the Legacy or LTS names).
