Anyone should feel free to edit this. Imho having a bug cloned up to four times is too obfuscating / unclear, but having another mechanism to track for which releases a bug is there would be nice, e.g. additional flags: fixedF7 fixedF8 fixedRawhide "?" unfixed "-" wontfix "+" fixed " " unclear, whether it needs to be fixed. Then when F9 is released and the bug is still open: copy status from fixedRawhide to fixedF9 One month later, when F7 is EOL: remove fixedF7 flag. In case now all flags are "+" or "-", e.g. because the issue was fixed in F8 and F9 / Rawhide, close the bug with an explanation, that one needs to update the release to fix the bug. Opposite to cloning bugs, this would keep the discussion of the bug in one bug reports instead of possibly splitting it through differen reports. Another possibility would be to use keywords, e.g. FixedF7 UnfixedF7 WontfixF7. This would even work without someone needing to reconfigure Bugzilla. Regards, Till
