The descriptions I entered for the new components did, in fact, transfer
into Bugzilla.  I don't know whether that means we can change them once
they're instituted.

I don't have any problem with this, but I can then see the value in
threshing the bugs at the end of each test phase.  In other words, if we
have bugs filed against, say, FC5test1 release notes, they would need to
be moved to FC5test2 when that is released, and so on until FC5 makes
final, when we should inherit a "fc5" version, and any remaining bugs
would move to that version.

You may want to refresh your owners.list -- the "project-tracking"
component is already out there, as well as "docs-requests".  I am
confused by making another tracking bug... wouldn't the list of trackers
in "project-tracking" suffice?  Or, rather, would being able to make a
single dependency tree of everything in "project-tracking" be
worthwhile?
