Strange bug report with component F-8

Description of problem:
Well, recently I received a strange bug report:
bug 376461 and bug 376471 .
Both of them has "component F-8", and they are assigned
Strangefully, on koji there is a "F-8" package,
of which the owner is me..
I looked at the Fedora component F-8 in bugzilla and you are actually listed as
its owner in Bugzilla, and this explains why you got these 2 bugs reports as you
would be the default assginee for the bugs filed against F-8. Fedora components
in bugzilla are managed by the Fedora community. do you believe that you are not
supposed to be the owner of this component?

Yes. Also I think F-8 component should not exist (perhaps).
Perhaps there was some mistake with CVS admin procedure?
When I imported that ruby parser package I made a typo on the pkgdb-client
command line and accidentally created a package "F-8". But I thought everything
was cleaned up about fifteen minutes after I did it. There must be some
lingering trace of it somewhere.
Looking at this now. I see where it was created from the Fedora side and am
working on fixing it. Is there a way to mark the component as "inactive" in
bugzilla xmlrpc once I do that?
The packagedb has been fixed to not output Removed components. What should we
do about the components created in bugzilla?
We can completely remove the component f-8 from bugzilla, however the component
has 2 bugs assigned to it,, so first we will need to move these 2 bugs to
another component then we can delete the component. So once you move these 2
bugs let us know and we will delete the component for you in bugzilla.
The 2 bugs are:

Bugs moved. There are also "cvsextras" and "jbrassow" components that I've
verified have no bugs against them and should be removed.
Two more that people serendipitously mentioned to me on IRC today:
All the above mentioned Fedora components have been deleted.
Please let us know if you need any more help.
closing this bug.
