Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 588009
RFE: Don't log bugs for GA versions, when updates exist (or _at least_ warn the user, and note it in the report)

Description of problem:
We are now seeing BZs reported like:
[Bug 588002] New: [abrt] crash in yum-3.2.27-2.fc12: utils.py:108:show_lock_owner:TypeError: 'NoneType' object is unsubscriptable
[Bug 588006] New: [abrt] crash detected in yum-3.2.25-1.fc12
...against F-12, where the bugs are already fixed. I don't remember this ever happening before abrt, so it'd be nice if you helped stop it.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
I am not sure whether the unwanted reports are duplicates of already fixed bugzilla bugs or are just reports for obsolete version of yum.
James, could you please clarify this for me?
Mostly the former. Eg. generally the bar of having to open a bug etc. would first get people to upgrade to the latest, which fixes their problem and thus. we wouldn't see bug reports. With abrt the bar is minimal, so everyone just blindly reports bugs that are already fixed.
