One bug == one problem with one version.  Use the clone feature of
Bugzilla (IMO, we need to solidify this at FUDcon - adding to my list
at [1].  Anyone should feel free to edit this.

See above.  When triaging, I tend to use the 'specific' search of
Bugzilla with some relevant keywords (that is product specific but not
version specific).  Without some good search abilities and a good eye,
there would have been no way for anyone to tell that 375681 and 427641
are duplicates, for example.

I wasn't planning on closing any current bugs that have no valid
reason to close them.  Just the EOL ones.
