Good questions, and I'm not sure of the answers. The package review
process is really a separate workflow that uses Bugzilla for convenience
so it doesn't really involve Bugzappers / QA at all. Bugzappers are
asked to leave package review requests entirely alone. I'll update the
lifecycle page to specify that it applies only to 'conventional' Fedora

For 1 I'd suggest NOTABUG, myself. For 2 I suppose, yeah, set it
NEEDINFO, and close as CANTFIX or INSUFFICIENT_DATA if they seem to have
disappeared. But that's just me guessing and carries zero weight, I
don't know who should make an Official Declaration in this case.

Resolutions aren't really super important, so don't get tied up over
them. Don't spend more than a minute thinking "my word! What resolution
should I use?!?!" - if you don't know and the page doesn't make it
clear, just take a guess, no-one's going to die if you get it 'wrong'.
It's just nice to have mostly consistent usage so we can sometimes
derive useful statistics from the resolutions.
